Your visit to the University of Washington will include a Guided Campus Tour, led by a UW student, and a Freshman Admission Information Session, led by an admissions counselor.
Our team is happy to ensure that your questions are answered. We want you to walk away with an understanding of the distinctive college experience the UW offers. Your ability to visit campus and learn more about the admissions process is sure to make a difference in your college search.
When? Daily Visitations take place Monday through Saturday. Morning and afternoon options are available. When you register, you will be able to select the time and date that works best for your family. Please note that many Daily Visitations fill to capacity. If a time or date is not listed, it is either unavailable or has already reached capacity.
Where? All Daily Visitations leave from the Husky Union Building (HUB) Welcome Center, Room 106.
How? Daily Visitations are free. Registration is required. Due to capacity restrictions, we recommend that families register at least four weeks in advance.
If possible, we recommend visiting on a Wednesday. It’s a great way to see a typical day on campus. By contrast, the following days are extremely popular and therefore fill up quickly: Mondays, Fridays, state in-service days, and the days surrounding three-day weekends.
