We offer guided tours of the building for prospective students and families on most weekdays when classes are in session.

Graduate Information Sessions (campus-led)

Graduate students interested in getting a more comprehensive visit experience with CU Boulder can attend one of the Graduate Information Sessions faciliated by the University's Office of Admissions. The info sessions are free to attend but do not cover any specific program, department, or discipline in detail. Rather, they provide students with an overview of graduate student life, CU Boulder's graduate program offerings, and important resources available on campus to graduate students. Learn more here
