Visit Campus

Prospective graduate students can participate in the walking tour of KU as well as setting up an appointment to meet with a faculty member in your field of study. If you choose to schedule a walking tour be sure to state that you are a graduate prospective student wishing to take a tour so that you are not scheduled for the additional undergraduate informational sessions.

A one-hour walking tour of KU's Lawrence Campus can be arranged by contacting Jenny Hout, Visit Day Coordinator. A student ambassador will conduct the tour through our beautiful campus. The Vistor's Center also offers free parking in their parking lot and free rides on the Visitor Center bus for all prospective student visitors. Tours are only offered on select days and times on a space available basis, the free bus only runs on the days tours are given. To arrange for this walking tour and the free parking information contact Jenny via e-mail at jhout@ku.edu or by phone at 785-864-5135. If participating in the tour be sure to keep in mind the tour times/days when scheduling an appointment with a faculty member.

Appointments with faculty must be done directly through the individual faculty member. It is best to allow at least 10 business days' notice before you plan to visit, when requesting to meet with a faculty member.

If you are coming when tours are not available you may wish to park nearer to Murphy Hall for easy access to those you wish to visit. The Allen Fieldhouse Garage is located closest to our building. A toll is collected when using the garage 24 hours a day, Monday through Friday. Visitors must pay their toll in advance at the Pay Station in the lobby on level 3 of the garage (the same level you drive in on) before exiting.
