Visit the Campus

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 Admitted and Prospective 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 and half for the tour and another thirty minutes for the Q & A.

Orange and Blue Days

Orange and Blue Days are large, day-long visit opportunities for admitted students and their guests. Listen to a student panel, tour campus, and learn more about housing and financial aid.

In conjunction with the university's Orange & Blue Days, the Women in Engineering Program will be holding an afternoon reception (1-2 p.m. in Illini Union 210) for all prospective female engineers and their parents to give them the opportunity to meet current Engineering students and faculty. All women interested in engineering fields are welcome to attend, including future Agricultural & Biological Engineers and Chemical Engineers.  Light refreshments will be served.


Engineering Information Bureau Days

Operated by the student-run Engineering Council, the Engineering Information Bureau offers programs that are designed to inform interested individuals and groups — most often prospective students and their parents. These visits are managed separately from campus or college visit programs.


Shadow an Engineer

This is your chance to spend a day with a current engineering student and experience campus life as you will once a student here. You will sit in on lectures, see residence halls and facilities, and most importantly, have time to talk with current students about their experiences.

Dates and times are customized for you. There is a fee of $10.


Organized by student-run Engineering Council and the Engineering Information Bureau.
