Weekday Campus Visits

Campus Visits are one of the best ways to experience for yourself what life is like as a University of Wyoming student.  During your visit, you'll tour our beautiful campus with a current UW student who will highlight academic programs, resources, and student life.  The day will also include the opportunity to meet an Admissions representative and attend an appointment with a representative from your areas of interest (based upon availability).

Campus visits may fill up quickly and we encourage you to submit your visit request early.  If your preferred check-in time is not available on a specific date, please choose a different date.

Visits must be requested a least a week in advance.  With less than a week's notice, we encourage you to attend a walk-in tour at 2pm.

If you have questions about requesting a visit or your upcoming visit, please contact the Campus Visits Center at (307) 766-4075 or

Campus tours are offered outside the University of Wyoming academic year.  However, keep in mind summer and winter break visits are quieter as fewer students are on campus.
