To support the University of Michigan’s efforts to help minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all LSA buildings are temporarily closed. All meetings with academic departments will be virtual or via telephone until the university returns to regular operation. To set up a meeting, please review the department’s website or contact them via phone or email.
Message from the Office of Admissions regarding visits
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, campus information sessions and tours, as well as all other admissions-related events, are cancelled through December 2020. However, we will be holding many virtual events for prospective students this summer and fall and families should check back for opportunities to engage with our admissions staff. Our Virtual Resources page offers many ways to discover more about Michigan. In the meantime, prospective students and families with questions may contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions via phone (734-764-7433) from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and email or live chat until 4:30 p.m. For the latest updates, please visit coronavirus.umich.edu.

LSA Virtual Campus Tour
At LSA, what you see is what you get…and what you’ve got here is pretty incredible. You will love the LSA Building, an amazing space that's great for collaboration. This video uncovers stunning facilities, specialized equipment, and unique-to-us opportunities that are around every corner.
The U-M Campus
LSA is the largest of the university’s 19 schools and colleges, located entirely on Central Campus. Take a virtual stroll around to get the lay of the land, but be careful not to step on the brass Block M in the middle of the Diag. That’s bad luck!
The University of Michigan is located in Ann Arbor, often hailed as America’s best college town. Once you experience the food, festivals, fairs, museums (U-M has several), parks, art, performances, and a little thing called Football Saturday, you’ll get it. In fact, you may not want to leave.
Connect With a Department
Browse our academic departments. If you would like to learn more or to request an appointment, you can connect via phone or email using the contact information at the bottom of the department page. Appointments should be requested with at least two weeks’ notice, and typically run up to 30 minutes.
There is a bit of homework you should finish before you meet:
- Review the unit’s website and degree requirements for the major(s) that interest you
- Review the LSA website and career visualization tool
- Prepare your list of questions
Get familiar with your parking options and scope out available parking spots around town when you come visit. If you park on the street, take note (or a pic) of your parking spot number. You can add time to the meter from any pay station around campus. Because preparation > frustration and fines.
As a student you may get lost in a project or in a book, but we never want you to get physically lost! Check out this U-M walking tour, complete with points of interest and the all-important maps!
Revel in It
Art lovers can seek out our Public Art collection featuring outdoor installations around town. This art is beautiful, memorable, and instagrammable.
