In response to the COVID-19, Campus and Visitor Relations campus tours and youth and adult campus visit program visits are suspended until further notice. We’re making this change in response to the university’s operational changes to protect the health and safety of our guests and employees. For more information see the UW-Madison’s COVID-19 Response page.

Ensuring that visitors can experience UW–Madison through alternative means is a top campus priority. The Office of Admissions and Recruitment now offers a virtual tour of campus and other virtual events for prospective and admitted students.


Schedule a phone call or video chat with a Campus Tour Guide!

Admitted students are invited to submit a request for a 15-minute phone or video appointment with a UW–Madison tour guide. During the call, the tour guide will share their unique Wisconsin Experience and answer your questions about campus life both inside and outside of the classroom. You may also request your appointment by calling 608-263-2000. Learn more.
