Campus tours are guided walking tours of UCLA with a particular focus on the graduate student experience. Guests will learn about the campus, UCLA history, graduate student life, graduate student resources, funding, and more.
Campus tours are available to prospective and current applicants. Come experience campus and find out if UCLA is a good fit. Tours last approximately two hours, which includes a 30-minute presentation and 90-minute walking tour. Walk-ins on tour dates are welcome, but we ask that you register in advance.
- The Tour includes hills and stairs; comfortable shoes are highly encourages
- Please allow ample travel time to account for Los Angeles traffic and parking
- A No-Steps tour is available for guests who would like ramp access with no stairs
This is a general tour that covers general graduate student information. For more specific questions, please contact your department of interest directly.
If no tour is available the day of your visit, you may pickup a self-guided tour map at the Graduate Division front desk located at Murphy Hall 1237. The office is open Monday-Friday from 9:00am-4:00pm.
Several departments also offer department and program-specific information sessions, open house days, class visits, and more.
Sometimes a virtual tour makes life a whole lot easier. Check out the resources below if you can’t make it to campus in-person.
