UCLA Undergraduate Student Campus Tours
Part of selecting a university is knowing what the campus looks like - its classrooms, lecture halls, recreational facilities, and residence halls (dorms). Prospective undergraduate students and their parents are encouraged to take UCLA’s General Campus Tour, which lasts approximately two hours and is led by a UCLA student guide. It's a walking tour, so we suggest you wear comfortable shoes.
Reservations are required for these campus tours, as space is limited. Please be aware that tours tend to fill up quickly, so we recommend that you make your tour reservation at least 2-3 weeks in advance. To request a reservation, please visit UCLA’s Undergraduate Admissions’ Tours page.
If you cannot make one of the guided tours, UCLA also offers self-guided campus tours via podcast. This allows you to take a tour of the campus at your own pace. To download the podcast, visit http://www.admissions.ucla.edu/podcasts/tour.html.
