Campus Visit for High School Students

A great way to get acquainted with the University of Louisville's campus is our unique Campus Visit Program. If you are unable to make it during scheduled tour times, feel free to try out our seasonal Mini Tours or Mobile Tour option.


Campus Visit Program
The Office of Admissions hosts a Campus Visit Program Monday through Friday and one Saturday per month. The program begins at 10:15 a.m. on weekdays and 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays (both times are Eastern Standard Time). Check available dates and times.

Your campus visit will include the following:

  • Information session: a 45-minute information session will begin your visit. A UofL admissions representative will discuss various topics including academic programs, the application process, campus life, scholarships and financial aid.
  • A student-guided tour of campus: a 90-minute tour immediately follows the information session. Learn about the history and traditions that have shaped the university. Visit academic buildings, a residence hall, the Student Activities Center (SAC), and more. The SAC houses food courts, the bookstore, Cardinal game room and recreational facilities.
  • Optional departmental visit: interested families choosing the 10:15 a.m. Campus Visit time can request an appointment to meet with a departmental representative (i.e. Honors, Engineering, etc.) by indicating it on the registration under 'additional requests'. Nursing will only host tours and meetings on the following Fridays: January 16, January 30, February 6, February 20, March 6, March 27, April 3, April 17, and May 15.

If choosing to meet with departmental representative after a 10:15 a.m. visit, two weeks’ notice is required. Please note that these meetings are not guaranteed and depend on our faculty’s class schedule and availability.
