Walking tours of our campus are led by a trained UWM student guide and include an informational presentation. Tours generally take two hours. Space is limited and reservations are required.
To register for a full tour experience and maximize your visit experience, please follow the three steps below:
STEP 1. Select an Academic Information Session to get more information about your intended major.
When scheduling a tour, we recommend starting by selecting an Academic Information Session that will be paired with your campus tour. These sessions are recommended for students who have decided on their major course of study or are exploring potential majors. As a prospective student, your session provides you an opportunity to learn specifics of your desired major and the school or college that offers the program. If you are still exploring major options or unable to attend an Academic Information Session, you do not need to pair an Academic Information Session with your campus tour and can move to step 2.

STEP 3. Register for the campus tour and academic information session
Now that you've picked your Academic Information Session and double checked that it works with your tour time, make sure to officially register you and your guests for both the tour and the academic information session.
When registering you will sign up for your campus tour first and then
