Group Visits

A group visit is defined by bringing more than 5 students at one time to see campus. Our group visit program can be tailored to meet your group’s needs. If you have a group that would like to experience UW first-hand, please call (307-766-5126) or e-mail ( directly to discuss scheduling this appointment.

Individual Student Visits

We want to provide YOU an opportunity to experience our campus firsthand, and to do so, we make our check-in times strategic to allow you to get a true sense of being a “Cowboy!” Please plan on a minimum of 4 hours for your visit, you won’t be disappointed!

It is important that we receive your visit request a full week in advance of your appointment. Make sure to consult our Academic Calendar at prior to selecting your date. We arrange individual visits Monday-Friday ONLY.

Due to holiday closures and limited assistance, we will not be providing campus visits on:

April 18, 2014

July 4, 2014

Coming on short notice? Please call us at 307-766-4075 after you submit your online visit request. We will do our best to accommodate you, but you may be limited to a campus tour and an admissions appointment. 

Unlike other campus visits, we offer:

• A UW water bottle upon your check-in. At 7220 feet elevation, you need to stay hydrated!

• A student guided tour and a tour of the residence halls.

• Enjoy a complimentary lunch for every visiting student and discounted prices for parents and additional guests. (This depends on your check-in time and date.)

Summer Visits are a more relaxed experience on a quieter campus. While Washakie Dining Center is not available, we will leave time in your schedule to eat on your own at the venues in the Wyoming Student Union.

• Speak with an admissions representative to learn more about UW, the admissions process, and scholarships. (You can chose to have a one-on-one admissions appointment OR, if you are visiting on a Friday, you can chose to participate in a fun-engaged group admissions presentation that answers all of the questions.)

• The opportunity to meet a representative in the College that your primary major will be housed

• At the conclusion of your day and at submission of your evaluation, you will receive your UW t-shirt with a 10% discount card for our University Store!

Still have questions? Want to learn more about campus opportunities? This is your time to explore campus on your own or ask for assistance.
