Admission Sessions and Tours

Thank you for your interest in visiting U.Va.

The Office of Admission offers information sessions and tours for prospective students and their families. Walking tours are given year-round, while classes are in session. Please make a reservation online prior to your visit. Once seating capacity has been reached, the session will be closed and will no longer appear on the calendar. We suggest that you try to make arrangements to attend another day.

Make a Reservation

Please note that for the safety and security of our students, walking tours will not go inside residence halls. Virtual tours of the residence halls are available on the Housing website.  See the bottom of this page for information about touring individual schools and academic departments. 

Please be sure to check the monthly schedules for updates to locations and times if you make a reservation well in advance of your visit.

PARKING INFORMATION

Unless indicated otherwise, visitors are invited to park in the Central Grounds Parking Garage located at 400 Emmet Street South, Charlottesville, VA 22904. We will provide parking validation (for up to three hours) after your information session/tour Monday through Friday.  After the tour, please present your parking ticket at the Office of Admission reception desk for validation. Please note that there are days of the year, including home football game days, when we will not be able to validate parking tickets from the Central Grounds Parking Garage.

Parking validation guaranteed only when Office of Admission is open, typically M - F, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm.

We look forward to seeing you!
