We have created a variety of options for you to virtually visit UMD. Choose the one that best fits your needs or try them all!

Join us for a student-led virtual tour of UMD's beautiful campus and learn more about what it's like to #BeATerp! Please see our visit calendar for the current schedule of Virtual Terrapin Tours.

Learn more about what makes UMD unique and get tips about our application process from an admission representative. The information session will be followed by a student-led virtual tour of campus. Please see our visit calendar for the current schedule of Virtual Maryland Information Sessions.

Recently admitted students can sign up to speak 1-on-1 with a current student and ask them questions about their UMD experience. Please see our visit calendar for the current schedule of Talk to a Terp sessions.

All Group Visits are canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic until further notice.

Grab your phone and your walking shoes and prepare to see the iconic sights of the University of Maryland! This is a great way to tour campus when our information sessions and student led tours are not available.

Be A Terp


You can only learn so much about a school from a brochure. Even if we tell you how beautiful our campus is, or how fantastic our students and faculty are, you will not know for yourself until you experience it for yourself!

Come try on our campus for size! Stop by one of our top-notch athletic facilities. Have a scoop of homemade ice cream at the Dairy. Rub the nose of one of our beloved Testudo statues for good luck. Get all your questions answered. It won't be hard to picture yourself at home here for the next four years. 

Please visit our updates page for information regarding visit opportunity changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
