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.

If you plan to visit the KU campus between Aug. 15 and Sept. 2, stop by the KU Visitor Center, 1502 Iowa Street, to meet with an admissions representative. Fall visits begin Tuesday, Sept. 6, and registration is now available. Many schools are out on October 14, October 20, and October 21. KU has planned special visit days on those days and you can register for those now. Friday, October 14, is our Crimson and Blue Day open house and Late Night in the Phog, a free event to open the KU basketball season, is that evening.

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.
