Daily Campus Tours
Graduate Admissions is currently open to in-person visitors 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Campus tours for prospective and incoming/new students are available.
Visitors are expected to follow CDC and City of Chicago travel guidelines, as well as the University of Chicago’s visiting protocol. Everyone – regardless of vaccination status – is required to wear a face covering over the nose and the mouth at all times while in University buildings. If you are experiencing flu-like or COVID symptoms, please do not come to campus and call or email us about rescheduling your visit.
To register for an on-campus visit, we ask that visitors please complete the following steps:
- Review the University’s Visitor Guidelines
- Follow UChicago and the City of Chicago‘s policies regarding travel
- Agree to be contacted via text/call for any last-minute adjustments
- Wear a mask indoors at all times, and agree to wear a mask during a campus tour if requested. If groups are larger than a few individuals, we will ask attendees to mask.
Graduate Admissions offers tours led by current graduate students Monday through Friday. Tours leave promptly from our office at 2:30 p.m. daily, and last approximately one hour. If you prefer to meet the tour outside, tour guides will pick up any additional visitors from the campus map sign located in front of the Bookstore Building near Ellis Avenue.
Walk-ins are accepted, but we ask that you please register in advance if possible. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation, including links to directions and parking information. Because parking near campus can be extremely difficult, we encourage you to allow at least 30 minutes to find parking, or to use public transit if possible.
If you have additional questions or need special accommodation, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com or by phone at 773.702.3760.
Due to the limited availability of space on campus at this time, we are currently only accepting requests for virtual information sessions OR campus tours for groups. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
