Campus Tours

 Campus TourOur Welcome Desk staff conducts tours for non-prospective undergraduate groups, alumni, business groups and community groups during each semester.

Tour Routes

All Tours will begin at Turner Hall and either ends back at Turner Hall, or if your group wants to eat on-campus, ends at STAMP Student Union or one of the Dining Halls. Exact routes will depend on construction.

If your group is interested in attending a specific event or exploring a specific campus building, please note that when you request your tour.

Visiting a campus academic building is a common request we receive from many groups. While we anticipate that groups will be able to visit one of our academic buildings, we cannot guarantee that all groups will visit an academic building. In order to ensure that we do not disrupt ongoing classes, tour guides will make a case-by-case decision about whether or not tour groups are able to visit an academic building.

Tours for groups of elementary and/or middle school students are provided by the Welcome Desk student staff. The 60-minute tour highlights key campus locations and includes stops at iconic campus landmarks.

We are very limited in our availability for Group Tours for the Spring 2024 semester. If you are interested in a Tour for an Elementary or Middle School Group, please email with your preferred dates/times and approximate number of students. We will do our best to accommodate your request, but due to our limited availability, we may not be able to. If we are unable to accommodate your request for a Guided Tour, Groups are encouraged to consider a Self-Guided Tour.

We can host Group Tours Monday-Friday and our last available date for tours in the Spring 2024 semester will be Thursday, May 9, 2024.

We will begin accepting requests for Summer 2024 Tours on Monday, June 3, 2024.

We are excited by your enthusiasm to tour our campus! We kindly will refer individuals in this category to arrange tours through the UMD Admissions Office

Self-Guided tours are a fun and interactive way for your group to tour our campus. Although self-guided tours do not involve a tour guide, they present all of the same information as a guided tour through a scavenger hunt and is a fun way to learn about the University.

All groups interested in a self-guided tour should stop by the Welcome Desk when they arrive to campus. A Welcome Desk Associate will provide you with a map and Visitor Guide that includes information about campus. Please be advised, visitor parking near the Welcome Desk is limited. We encourage you to park in a designated visitor parking location and walk to the Welcome Desk to begin your tour. For visitor parking locations, please refer to this map.

Please consider viewing the Visitor Guide prior to your arrival.

To see more of the campus virtually, we encourage you to explore our Campus Web Map.

Teacher Resources

Make your visit memorable with our downloadable activities. We have activities for all ages that can be completed before or after your tour.
