Daily Visits


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

To ensure the wellbeing and safety of our guests and campus community as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that all registered individuals (and their guests) abide by the following guidance.

In order to participate in a Terrapin Tour, Maryland Information Session & Tour, or a Group Tour, you must agree to:

  • Abide by our guest limitations and only bring up to 2 guests with you during your visit. No exceptions will be made for larger groups. If you are trying to arrange a tour for 10 or more students, please look into our Group Tour option.
  • Show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of your scheduled visit. Supporting documentation will be required at check-in.
  • Cancel your visit if you are experiencing any symptoms or are feeling ill. To cancel, please email visit@umd.edu using the subject line "Visit Cancellation".

Here's your chance to learn about UMD and our application process from an admission representative, followed by a student-led campus walking tour! This session is geared toward high school and transfer students. Registration is required. See available dates on our calendar.

Let our students be your guide for a comprehensive walking tour of UMD's beautiful campus! This is a great opportunity to hear directly from current students about their experiences at UMD and get your questions answered. Terrapin Tours are geared toward high school and transfer students. Registration is required. See available dates on our calendar.

Please note, Terrapin Tours only include a student-led tour. If you are hoping to learn more about UMD from an admission representative, register for one of our Maryland Information Session & Tours. You can also visit the Mitchell building during your visit to speak with our staff.

If you are interested in bringing a group of 10 or more people to campus, explore the different types of group tours available. Depending on the audience of your group, you may need to make arrangements with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions Visitor Center, or Conference & Visitor Services.

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

All campus visitors must follow UMD's 4Maryland protocols.

For special accommodations or services for deaf or hearing-impaired visitors, please email us directly at visit@umd.edu using the subject line "Special Accommodations".

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.
