Maryland Information Session and Terrapin Tour

You can learn about the admission process and see the campus in the same visit through our Maryland Information Session and Terrapin Tour.

Join us for a Maryland Information Session and Terrapin Tour, where you’ll enjoy a 35-minute information session presented by an admission representative and then take a 75-minute campus walking tour led by a student guide. During the presentation, you’ll learn all about the University of Maryland; our colleges, majors and special programs; student life; and the application process. Registration is required.

On your tour, you’ll see classroom buildings, a dining hall, McKeldin Library, the Stamp Student Union, and many other campus landmarks. You are welcome to follow along using our interactive online campus map. (Please note that access to campus buildings during Saturday tours is restricted.) To protect our students’ privacy, we do not enter a residence hall room on the tour; however, you can explore many of our residence halls by taking a virtual tour of our facilities. Your student guide will have information about everything you see and can answer many of your questions about campus.

Check our calendar of events for dates and times of tours. If an event listed on the calendar does not appear on the registration page, that session is at capacity. Tours are not offered on university holidays. However, if you are visiting our campus during off-hours, when another visit option is not available, or you just happen to be in the College Park area, our self-guided audio Terrapin Tour is a great way to experience Maryland first-hand!

Additional sessions and tours facilitated by specific colleges and departments may be available while you are on campus. Learn more here
