Visiting KU

We love sharing our beautiful hilltop campus and talking about all the reasons students choose the University of Kansas. Until we can host our popular in-person visits again, you can learn about life at KU through online experiences, including our interactive information sessions.

Online info sessions

We offer several options weekly, and we do our best to paint a vivid crimson and blue picture of our campus, its people, and the opportunities that await you. Representatives of the many academic offices and units will also be there. Bring your questions!

Visit the Hill from wherever you are.

Take a virtual tour of campus or explore KU on YouTube and Instagram.

Open house events

This year’s open house events are postponed until further notice. Assemble your own virtual exploration on our Schools & Spaces page.
