Undergraduate Engineering Tours

Coronavirus Information (COVID-19)

UC Berkeley campus tours have been suspended from Monday, March 16 through Friday, May 15. Please continue to check this website for virtual opportunities to connect with current students.

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.

Since in-person campus tours aren’t currently possible, we hope you will take advantage of our self-guided audio tour. While no one is currently allowed to be on our campus due to the coronavirus, you can still dial in and listen to information about us and virtually walk our beautiful grounds.

We look forward to opening up our campus soon.

Engineering Tours

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.
