Prospective Student/Family Walking Tours

Tours begin from the UC Davis Welcome Center

We welcome future applicants and their families to join our weekday walking tours of UC Davis. Tours begin and end at the Welcome Center. Your visit experience will begin with an Admissions presentation the first 30 minutes and conclude with a one hour walking tour of our beautiful campus. Your tour will take you through the central core of the UC Davis campus and will be student led. Visitors will learn about academic excellence, student services, organizations, clubs, as well as research and internship opportunities at UC Davis. To register for a tour, please either enter your information below or call our tour reservation line at 530-752-8111. Our e-mail address is visit@ucdavis.edu.

Please bring comfortable walking shoes and be prepared for beautiful mild weather during the spring and fall, rainy weather during winter months and temperatures between 80 to 100 degrees during summer season. Drinking water is highly encouraged during summer months.
