Join us for a 75-minute walking tour of Central Campus, led by one of our current U-M student tour guides. The majority of this tour will take place outside, so we strongly encourage you to check the local weather forecast and dress appropriately.

All in-person visits are by appointment only. Due to strict tour capacities, registration is required and walk-ins cannot be accommodated. In the event of cancellations or if additional dates become available, the registration page will be updated to accurately reflect tour availability.

Information sessions — where you will receive an overview of U-M and the admissions process — will generally be held each day a tour is offered (except Saturdays). To attend an information session, you'll need to be registered for a campus tour and indicate your interest when you sign up. Attending an information session is not factored into our review process if you apply to U-M. If you're unable to attend an information session in person, you can view a recorded session online, which covers the same information.

Things to Know Before You Register

  • Your party cannot exceed four total people.
  • If you arrive more than 10 minutes after your tour is scheduled to begin, your tour will have departed and you will be provided a self-guided walking tour map.
  • When you register, you will have the opportunity to inform us of your mobility-related accessibility needs. We will do our best to accommodate you.

Registering for a Tour

Before You Arrive on Campus

The health and safety of our visitors, students, and staff is our highest priority. The following information will be helpful to know prior to your visit:

  • Stay home if you are sick: Do not come to campus if you are ill. Instead, please utilize our virtual programming and campus tour videos.
  • Tours will be led by current U-M students and may be stopped at the discretion of the tour guide if proper protocols are not being followed.


What can we expect on the tour?

The tour will be led by current student tour guides and will last approximately 75 minutes. Guests must stay with their tour guide at all times and may only enter buildings included as a part of the tour route.

Will the tour include a residence hall or dining hall?

A model room located in a residence hall is included in our tour, although dining halls are not. Guests are welcome to purchase a meal in one of our dining halls outside of the tour.

Can I bring more than three guests?

Due to university policy, registered students are only permitted to bring a maximum of three guests. We are not able to make exceptions to the guest capacity, tour capacity, or the late arrival policy. Parties with more than three total guests will be asked to reschedule or be provided a self-guided walking tour map.

Can I speak with an Admissions representative while on campus before or after my tour?

We encourage you to attend one of our live Virtual Post-Information Session Q&As, led by an admissions counselor, where you’ll be able to ask any questions you may have.
