Campus tours for prospective and incoming/new students are currently available most weekdays, but please check the schedule and register online. We cannot offer tours at unscheduled times. 

Campus Tours

The University of Chicago welcomes prospective graduate students and visitors to our campus. On this site you will find information to help you plan your trip to Chicago and the University. You will find maps of the area, links to nearby accommodations, and information on joining a Graduate Admissions tour of campus. A few of our professional schools offer their own specific visit opportunities for students throughout the year, and we encourage you to explore those as well, particularly if your plans include the Booth School of Business, the Law School, the Harris School of Public Policy, or the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice. Regardless of your area of interest, you are welcome to attend one of our tours.

For more information, please contact Graduate Admissions via email at or by phone at 773.702.3760.
