Campus Tours

Student-led walking tours are one of the best ways to become better acquainted with our campus. Our student tour guides fill the tours with facts and personal stories, providing an overview of academic and student life at UMass Amherst. During the 90-minute tour, you'll see the Campus Center, Student Union, Du Bois Library, a model dorm room, Recreation Center, Commonwealth Honors College, and an academic building. Please be aware that these are general tours and not specific to any particular major.

With a 1,400 acre campus and 90-plus majors, we can't show or tell you everything that UMass Amherst has to offer, but our tour guides can answer most questions and are available to give you directions or contact information for any department at the conclusion of the tour.

Tours originate from the Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center located at 1 Campus Way, Amherst, MA 01003. Please note that these walking tours cover about a mile, rain or shine - so be prepared for the New England weather!

Many departments across campus offer prospective students and their families opportunities to visit and learn more about their departmental offerings. We encourage students to reach out to the department they are interested in by following the link below. *Please note: The Hadley Farm is not open to the public without making an appointment.

Admissions Information Sessions

Prospective students who have not yet been offered admission to UMass Amherst are welcome to attend an Admissions information session prior to your tour. These sessions are conducted by an Admissions Representative, last about 45 minutes, and are specific to the freshman application process. They're a great way to learn more about the application and review processes.

We also offer transfer-focused information sessions at 12:30 p.m. on the following dates: 9/29, 10/6,10/20, 11/10, 12/22, and 1/12/2018.? Conducted by a transfer counselor, they are timed to pair with the 1:30 tour.
