University of Florida Campus Tours

The UF Office of Admissions offers official campus tours Monday through Friday (except for state and university holidays) at the Welcome Center, located at 737 Reitz Union Drive. Visitors should park in the parking garage at the Welcome Center (there is a $5.00 charge).

Campus tours for prospective students begin with a 30-minute information session followed by a 90-minute walking tour led by current students. Typically there are two tours offered each day. However, please view the calendar for all available dates and times, as our schedule may change to accommodate a higher volume of visitors.

Sign up for a campus tour led by one of our student cicerones. See the world like they do, as Gators.
