First Year Student Visits

As a student transitioning from high school to university life, you have lots to consider. Visit campus for a test drive! Sit in the driver’s seat to gain a sense of how UW Bothell will help you get where you want to go.

Daily Visits

Campus visits provide you with a general overview of our academic programs, student support services, and the application process. After the information session, you will go on a walking tour of campus where you will see classrooms, science labs, student life facilities, and more! Tours are led by current students who will provide you with an “insider’s” point of view; student tour guides are happy to answer any questions you may have about becoming a future Husky.

When: Monday – Friday (except holidays)
Time: 10 AM and 2 PM
Length: Typical visits last about an hour and fifteen minutes.
