Daily Campus Tours
Visiting campus is one of the best ways to learn about UT Arlington. It gives you a chance not just to experience campus, but the opportunity to see what it would be like to be a student at the University. Daily campus tours are led by MavElite tour guides who are current UT Arlington students. The daily campus tour is approximately a 2 hour walking tour that showcases the University’s campus
UT Arlington typically offers six daily campus tours and three housing tours every Monday through Friday and a combination campus tour and housing tour on Saturdays. Summer tour offerings may vary.
During the academic year daily campus tours leave from the Dan Dipert University Welcome Center at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. Daily housing tours also leave from the Dan Dipert University Welcome Center and are offered at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. Saturday tours are offered at 10:30 a.m. and include a campus tour and a housing tour.

Daily campus tours are not offered on major holidays or when weather conditions become unsafe. Saturday tours are not offered on holiday weekends or on Preview Day weekends.
