See Milwaukee – Campus Tours

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:

1. Select an Academic/Campus Resource Information Session

When scheduling a tour, we recommend starting by selecting an Academic or Campus Resource 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 and resources. 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 only interested in taking the campus tour or unable to attend an Academic or Campus Resource Information Session, you do not need to pair an Academic or Campus Resource Information Session with your campus tour and can move to step 2.

To view the Academic or Campus Resource Information Session offerings, please refer to the chart below.
