Summer Visit Programs

Visit CU-Boulder

With the warm summer sun and a long list of activities, Colorado is not just a winter vacation destination. Experience the beautiful and exciting CU-Boulder campus firsthand through one of the visit programs hosted by the Office of Admissions. Daily information sessions and tours start in June and run throughout the summer. These half day programs are offered Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Admissions Staff and current CU-Boulder students will share the value of a CU-Boulder education, the admissions process, information on housing, and more.

You may also hear firsthand what it’s like to be a student on your student-led walking tours of campus. If you are looking for a full-day visit program, we recommend the Summer Sampler on Saturday, July 12. It offers the chance to tour campus, attend information sessions, learn about residence life, join panel discussions with current students and administrators, meet with campus representatives, and have lunch in an on-campus dining hall.

Visits continue year-round and include the CU Student for a Day Programs, CU Engineering Sampler, the CU Diversity Sampler, and Admitted Student Day. Visit Programs are not offered on some holidays and university closures.

For dates, details, or to make a reservation, please go to or call (303) 492-6301.


The CU-Summer Send-Off Program has been an important part of the University’s efforts to welcome new students and their parents and ease their transition to college life in Boulder. Sponsored by the Office of Parent Relations these events will be scheduled around the United States in July and August to avoid Summer Orientations. Visit for more information.
