Coronavirus Information (COVID-19)
UC Berkeley campus tours have been suspended from Monday, March 16 through Sunday, May 31. Please visit our Virtual Engagements page to register for a Virtual Visit – over Zoom! We offer them daily.
In response to COVID-19, we currently have a shelter-in-place order. Please continually check this website and UC Berkeley’s COVID-19 website which is frequently updated with information and resources.
We look forward to opening up our campus soon.
Normally, we offer a limited number of engineering tours during the fall, spring, and summer semesters for prospective and newly admitted undergraduate students and their families. The 90-minute guided walking tour will visit several buildings in the College of Engineering, led by specially trained campus ambassadors. Find out about teaching, research, student projects, services and groups. You’ll learn some general campus information on this tour, but the bulk of the tour focuses on the College of Engineering and it does not replace the general campus walking tour. You will need a separate reservation for a general campus tour.
