Group Campus Tours

Register for a group campus tour

Thank you for your interest in group campus visits at UT Arlington. We provide tours for school and community groups of 10-100 individuals and can accomodate the following:

  • Elementary, Middle, and High School students (grades 4th-12th)
  • Community College Students
  • Adult groups
  • Organizations such as churches, sports teams, scouting, YMCA, etc.

Our free group visit experience consists of a walking tour and optional admission information session. The tour is led by MavElite student tour guides, lasts about an hour and 15 minutes, and gives a general overview of campus life. Admission information sessions are scheduled upon request and contingent upon staff and space availability. If interested in scheduling an information session, please include a note in the comments section of the request form. 

For all campus visit activities (including tours and information sessions), please provide at least 10 business days advance notice. Group tours are available Monday-Friday at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., and Saturdays at 10 a.m.

Once your campus visit is confirmed, you will receive detailed information regarding driving directions, parking, check-in location, etc. For questions, please contact the Dan Dipert University Welcome Center at 817-272-8687 / campustours@uta.edu.

Scheduling Tips

  • The earlier you schedule your visit the better! We begin scheduling group tours one semester in advance. Fall tour registration opens in May and Spring/Summer tour registration opens in November.
  • Our 10:30 am time slot fills up the fastest. If you are interested in this morning tour please schedule the tour as soon as you can.
  • Fridays are the most popular day for tours. If you need a tour on a Friday please schedule with us as soon as possible.
  • Housing is not included as part of a group tour. If you are interested in scheduling a housing tour please contact Jimmie Walker to arrange it. Please note the housing office only schedules tours for grades in high school and above.  

In addition to campus tours and information sessions, groups may supplement their visit with the activities below.
