Planning your visit to UVa

If you're thinking of heading to Charlottesville this fall to visit the University, there are a few things you should know about.

First of all, visitors always seem to want appointments for information sessions and tours. We run sessions and tours regardless of how many people are going to show up, but we decided to institute a reservation system so we can plan our room reservations and give the University Guide Service a heads up about how many tour guides they'll need to schedule.

The tour and information session schedule is always posted online and once you pick a visit date and time, you can move to the reservation page to let us know when you'll be coming. Even group visits can be scheduled via the reservation system.


You can contact the Monroe Society if you'd like to stay overnight and shadow a student during their day. If you want to plan your own visit without an official host, you can consult the Open Class List to select a couple classes that interest you.

Feel free to post questions about visits in the comments. We hope to see you on Grounds soon!
