Visit the Campus

One of the best ways to decide if you belong in Engineering at Illinois is to experience campus first-hand.

Our goal is to make your visit as information and worthwhile as possible. In order to fit your schedule and interests, there are many options for you. Come for a few hours, a day, or even overnight! Don’t be surprised if you’re not ready to leave.

Daily Visits for Prospective & Admitted Students

The University's Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers daily programs consisting of an overview of the admissions information, financial aid, housing, and a student panel.

We then encourage you to join us for an Engineering campus tour and information session, which begins at 2:00 p.m. For the session, you’ll be able to ask engineering specific questions to deans and academic advisors. Plan for about an hour for the tour and another hour for the Q & A.
