Campus Visits

The best way to see what life is like at the University of Houston is to visit campus.

With a University of Houston student as your guide, our campus tour gives prospective students and their families the chance to see campus first-hand and discover the many opportunities the University has to offer.

A campus visit includes an information session, residence hall tour, and the opportunity to speak to an admissions counselor. The total time of the visit will be approximately two hours.
