- Every day of the week (Monday through Sunday) at 1:00 PM, except for Saturdays of home football games. No reservations are required.
Note: We do not offer tours during finals, UVA's Spring Break or other academic breaks. Check the UVA academic calendar for those dates.
Summer tours will begin on May 16th. During the summer, tours are held Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. No reservations are required.
Academic Recess Periods
During the University's academic recess periods (such as Spring Break or Winter Break or between the academic year and the summer), tours are offered less frequently. If you plan to visit the Engineering School during one of these recess periods, please call the Undergraduate Programs office 434-924-4074 at least a few days before you plan to visit, to confirm that a tour will be offered. No reservations are necessary. Check the academic calendar for pertinent dates.
Visits to Grounds
The University's Office of Admissions offers information sessions, visits and tours for prospective students and their families. Sessions and tours are accessible to persons using wheelchairs.
