Please take the time to read the details about each event below and then use the "Schedule a Campus Visit" link at the bottom of this page to make your reservation.
We're delighted that you are interested in visiting UMass Amherst. Below you'll learn more about our campus tours and information sessions. We are a popular campus to visit and some dates do reach capacity well in advance - scheduling a reservation early is strongly encouraged.
Student led walking tours are one of the best ways to truly see, explore, and become better acquainted with our campus. Our student tour guides fill the tours with facts and some personal student stories, providing an overview of academic and student life at UMass Amherst. You'll see the Campus Center, Student Union, Du Bois Library, a model dorm room, and an academic building, during the 75 minute tour. Please be aware that the tours are general tours, and not specific to any particular major. With a 1,400 acre campus and 90+ majors, we can't show you or tell you everything UMass Amherst has to offer, but our tour guides can answer most questions and are available to give you directions or contact information for any department at the conclusion of the tour. Tours originate from the Robsham Memorial Center for Visitors. Please note that these are walking tours (covering about a mile in total), rain or shine - so be prepared for the New England weather!
Admissions Information Sessions
For prospective students who have not yet been offered admission to UMass Amherst, you are welcome to add an Admissions information session prior to your tour. These sessions are conducted by an Admissions Representative, last about 45 minutes, and are specific to the freshman application process. An information session is a great way to learn more about the application and review process.
Winter and Spring Semester Schedule
Our Winter Break tour schedule is posted. The spring semester tour schedule will be available in the near future. Please check back soon!
We will provide all registered guests with a free parking pass upon check in. To allow sufficient time to check in, arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your first scheduled event. You may temporarily park your vehicle in the 15 minute spots behind the Visitors Center. If you did not provide your license plate information when registering, please have this information when you check in with our receptionist. The receptionist will provide you with a parking pass, directions, and the location of your scheduled event(s).
