Visiting the Campus

Prospective students and their families are welcome to visit the Office of Admissions in Regent Administrative Center 125, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (summer hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except on holidays. Daily information sessions, walking tours of the campus, and special all-day visit programs are offered. Although interviews are not used in the decision-making process, you are invited to visit the campus.

The best time to see the campus is when classes are in session (September through mid-December and mid-January to early May, with the exception of spring break); see the academic calendar for specific dates. There are dates when information sessions, campus tours, and visit programs are not held due to holidays or university closures. It is important to check our website for the most current information.


Reservations are required for all information sessions, tours, and visit programs and can be made through your MyCUBoulder ( account. For complete visit program descriptions, dates, reservation forms, and campus maps, go to, or call 303-492-6301. Visit program dates for future academic years are added to the website as they become available (usually in August each year).

Daily Information Sessions and Campus Tours

Information sessions with an admission counselor are held Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Following the information sessions are walking tours of the campus led by student guides, beginning at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Combined information sessions and tours are also held at 10:30 a.m. most Saturdays.

Campus Visit Programs

An excellent way to become acquainted with the campus is to participate in one of the campus visit programs specially designed for prospective students and parents.

These programs, offered on selected Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year, provide prospective students and their families the chance to participate in information sessions, take a campus tour, learn more about residence hall life, talk with student and parent panels, and meet with campus representatives, as well as attend classes or listen to a sample lecture. To make reservations for any or all of these visit programs, go to or call the Office of Admissions at 303-492-6301
