Self-Guided Campus Tours

Self Guided Tours

Self-guided tours provide flexibility and allow the freedom to explore campus on your own. Booklets can be found in the information rack outside the Office of Admissions in Solon Campus Center (SCC 41) or you can access a digital version and campus map in our Visit Resources section below. 

Registration for self-guided tours is not required, but we do encourage you to stop by during our office hours for any questions you may have. Our Admissions Counselors are available and happy to help you learn more about UMD! Find your counselor at d.umn.edu/connect. The Office of Admissions is open Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm (with the exception of holidays). Also, keep in mind: not all offices are open, and you could run into locked doors along the way. Please contact our office if you need any additional assistance with our visit options.
