"Our students really enjoyed touring the campus and learning about everything UMD has to offer. Thank you for accommodating such a large group."

Special tours for groups of 10 or more persons may be arranged by appointment only and should be arranged at least two weeks in advance of your visit. Group tours for college-bound students in the eighth grade or above are conducted through Undergraduate Admissions by the Maryland Images student organization.

For young students and other campus guests
Group tours for younger student groups, alumni, visiting faculty and other general visitors are conducted by Visitor Center student staff through Visitor Services. Customized campus visits may be arranged that may include stops at various campus landmarks. Currently, we offer a general campus tour highlighting key locations on the main part of campus. Arrangements may also be made to tour the Comcast Center, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center or the Campus Greenhouses. Groups may also get an opportunity to eat in one of our campus dining centers, Stamp Union food court, or just grab an ice cream cone at the Dairy! Inquiries may be directed to email@example.com or complete the reservation form and fax to 301.314.6693. Arrangements should be made at least two weeks in advance of your visit.
Individual Campus Daily Visits
The Office of Admissions offers MyMaryland Information Sessions on a reservation only basis. The MyMaryland session begins with a 45-minute information session including a question and answer period conducted by an Admissions representative and held in the Visitor Center auditorium. Immediately following the presentation is a 75-minute walking tour of campus led by a Maryland Images student. For reservations, visit www.admissions.umd.edu or call 800.422.5867.
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions also offers Terrapin Tours (a campus walking tour) Monday-Friday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. throughout the year (with a few exceptions between academic terms), led by Maryland Images student staff. Reservations are encouraged but not required for these walking campus tours for prospective students and their families, which depart from the Rossborough Inn. You are encouraged to arrive 20 minutes prior to the tour to view a video presentation.
If you miss an opportunity to catch a tour, walking or driving tour maps are available to pick up at the Visitor Center.
