Campus Tours

Daily Campus Tours

To register for an on-campus visit, we ask that visitors please review our FAQ and the University’s Visitor Guidelines. Graduate Admissions offers tours led by current graduate students most weekdays. Tours leave promptly at the scheduled time, and last approximately one hour. 

Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation, including links to directions and parking information. Because parking near campus can be 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 or by phone at 773.702.3760. 

Group Visits

UChicagoGRAD is pleased to welcome group visits to campus. We offer campus tours with a current graduate student and informational sessions with a staff member which can be tailored to the interests of the group.

The first step in arranging a group visit is to fill out the online group tour request form. Programs which primarily serve minority, low-income, and first generation students, such as McNair programs, will be contacted by the Diversity Outreach Coordinator Joseph Butler to arrange the details of your visit. All other groups will be contacted by the Graduate Admissions office to make arrangements. Graduate Admissions does not arrange lab tours, faculty appointments, or other programming beyond the campus tour and informational session.

Please contact us at for more information.
