Visit Campus

We highly recommend coming to visit UW-Madison’s campus. We’re on 936 wooded, beautiful acres along the shores of Lake Mendota. We’re also right in the middle of Downtown Madison and connected to the Wisconsin Capitol building via State Street, giving the campus both a rural and an urban feel.  It’s an amazing place in every season!

One great way to visit UW-Madison is to attend a Transfer Visit Day.  You’ll arrive in the late morning for an Admissions presentation, take a campus tour, eat lunch on your own, and then have the opportunity to interact with your school or college of interest, or to meet one-on-one with a Transfer Transition advisor to talk about your transition.

You can also build your day around an academic information session given by various departments, schools, and colleges, a tour of one of our learning communities, or a pre-transfer advising appointment with the Transfer Transition Program. Customize your visit so that it works for you!
