Join us for a 75-minute walking tour of our Central Campus neighborhood, led by one of our current U-M student tour guides. Please note that 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.

Info sessions — where you will receive an overview of U-M and the admissions process — will be held at 10:15 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. each day a tour is offered (except Saturdays). Please note: To attend an info session, you'll need to be registered for a campus tour and indicate your interest when you sign up. Attendance at info sessions is not considered as a factor in our review process. If you're unable to attend an information session in person, you can view a recorded session online, which covers the same information.

While we look forward to engaging with you in person, for your health and safety, if you are not vaccinated or unable to be vaccinated, we encourage you to delay your attendance.

Things to Know Before You Register

  • Your party cannot exceed three total people from the same household.
  • During check-in, you and your guest(s) will be asked for verbal confirmation that each of you completed the ResponsiBLUE online screening. You'll see a green check mark on the final screen if you passed the screener.
  • Although masking is now optional, mask use is still suggested as an effective strategy for enhanced personal protection, especially for those with immune status, those who are not vaccinated or up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, and anyone with a perceived increased situational risk.
  • 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.

FAQs

What can we expect on the tour?

Will the tour include a residence hall or dining hall?

Residence and dining halls are currently closed to visitors due to university, local, and/or state public health regulations.

Can I bring more than two guests?

Parties with more than three total guests will be asked to reschedule or provided with a self-guided walking tour map.

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

We are not currently able to offer any in-person Admissions advising. We encourage you to attend one of our Q&A sessions led by one of our admissions counselors following your tour.
