The Office of Undergraduate Studies invites community members, prospective transfer students, and K-12 students and instructors to connect and engage with higher education through the Campus Engagement Program. It’s never too early or too late to begin your college journey.
Campus visits at the University of Utah are valuable learning experiences that spark academic interests and set participants on a path toward higher education. We fill these campus visits with engaging, interactive experiences to help students and community members imagine themselves in college. Rather than focus on full walking tours of campus, we collaborate with over 35 academic and student success departments at the University to arrange for a variety of activities and demonstrations. Prospective students seeking a full campus tour should schedule one through the Office of Admissions.
The demand for visits through the Campus Engagement Program is always growing and availability is limited. We encourage you to submit your campus visit requests as
early as possible. If you are interested in scheduling a visit for the coming academic year, please fill out our campus visit request formbelow. Campus visit requests must be made at least 8 weeks in advance of desired visit date.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are available for campus visits during the academic year from September 24, 2024 through April 18, 2025 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm.

We do not hold campus visits during university closure days, during university finals weeks, during the summer, or during specific “blackout weeks” throughout the year.

Campus visits are scheduled on a "first come, first served" basis. To ensure that your potential date is available, please try to book, at least, four weeks in advance. Campus visit requests are accepted starting on July 1st.

 

Our average campus visit lasts 4 hours (9:30 am - 1:30 pm). A four-hour campus visit typically includes an interactive experience with an academic department, a College 101 presentation, lunch on campus, a brief tour of the Marriot Library and A. Ray Olpin University Union.

Campus visits are free of charge! 

You are responsible for the cost of transportation to the University and the cost of lunch for the students, if applicable.

For schools or organizations facing significant financial restraint, we may be able to subsidize the cost of transportation and lunch for your campus visit. Please contact Amery.Kong@utah.edu with your inquiry.

Due to limited available space and staffing capacity, we are able to host groups of no more than 80 participants per day. Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions.

Please fill out the campus visit request form.

As you fill out the form, please pay special attention to list any accommodations or needs members of your group may have.

Please note that reservations are NOT confirmed until you have received a confirmation email. In order to properly plan a visit and coordinate with university departments, we cannot accommodate requests made within 8 weeks of a requested visit date.

Contact Program Manager, Amery Kongphouthakhoun, if you have questions or need assistance in planning your visit.
