Watch a whirlwind tour of our beautiful hilltop campus, above. Then go further by scheduling a visit — we’d love to personally share with you why students choose KU.

In-person campus visits

The best way to experience KU is with a full campus visit. During our Jayhawk Days and Transfer Fridays events, we provide an admissions presentation, campus tour, and the opportunity for you to meet with academic departments and your other areas of interest.

Interactive info sessions

General audiences and transfer students can bring their questions and excitement to one of our online events, where we virtually share our campus, its people, and the opportunities that await.
