Daily Drop-In Tours

Are you heading through Laramie in the next week and want to tour our campus? We'd love to see you!

We offer drop-in campus tours at 2pm (mountain time) every weekday that our office is open. Each campus tour is an hour long lead by a current UW student who will highlight academic programs, resources, and student life. 

If you would like to request an appointment with an academic or area of interest, please schedule a Campus Visit at least a week prior to your desired visit date.

Parking Information:
Parking for campus tours is located just off of E. Ivinson and S. 13th Street in the parking area north of Ivinson.  Park in any of the “Future Cowboy Parking” spots as you enter the east side of the lot.
Important:  Upon arrival, check-in with the Campus Visitor Center to obtain your parking permit and place it in the front dashboard to avoid a ticket.
If the spots on the east side of the lot are full, feel free to pull into a metered spot on the west side of the lot or proceed to the main Union Parking Lot off 15th Street to park.  To access the Union Lot, turn left onto Ivinson Street to go east towards 15th Street.  Turn left at the stoplight at 15th Street.  Go straight through the stoplight at Sorority Row and turn left into the Union Parking Lot.  Feel free to park in any non-metered or specially marked/reserved spot.  Don’t forget to put the parking permit in the dashboard of your car. 
If you have a handicap placard, feel free to park in any accessible spot and place the permit in the dashboard of your car.
Check-in Information:
Once you have parked your car in a “Future Cowboy Parking” spot, follow the sidewalk up to the main steps of the Wyoming Union.  Enter the Union through the main west doors and the Campus Visit Center is located directly to your left.
Click here to view a campus map and to get a glimpse of campus before you arrive.  You do not need to print this prior to your visit as we will provide you a map with areas of interest highlighted upon check-in.
