Group Visits and Tours

Group visits are designed only for counselors, teachers, advisors, etc. who would like to bring a group of students from a school, college, or community organization on a field trip to visit the University of Utah. They are offered by appointment only during weekdays, typically at 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

For groups with high school (9th-12th grade) or transfer students:

Your visit will consist of a walking tour of the campus led by a University Ambassador. An admissions presentation led by one of our Admissions Counselors is also available by request.  All requests must be submitted to or by calling 801.581.6295. For email requests please include "group visit for (school/group name)" in the subject line.
