Dip your toe into Wildcat life through a variety of sessions focused on academics, tours, social experiences and resources.

You can explore campus through various tours, meet our amazing faculty to get a taste of the knowledge you have access to, talk to our expert staff members about the resources on campus and engage in some social experiences that make the University of Arizona so unique!


In our academic sessions, you will hear from notable and exemplary faculty from around the University on various topics — just to get a taste of the stellar academics and knowledge you’ll have access to at the University of Arizona.


Our tour sessions will give you direct access to residence halls, athletic and recreational facilities, academic buildings (science labs and lecture halls, oh my!) and our other world-class amenities.


Experience campus spirit the Wildcat way through various social activities including virtual reality, watching live performances and hanging out at the largest student-run carnival in the country, Spring Fling!


We call ourselves the Wildcat family largely because of the support and resources students have access to on campus — we are a community-driven university! Speak with UA experts about financial aid, study support services, community partnerships and more. Need help working your way through the Next Steps Center? We’re here to help!
