Admissions Tours for Prospective Applicants

The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) receives numerous requests for tours of the facilities each week. However, at this time, we are unable to offer non-admission related tours to social, civic, and other special interest groups. Prospective students should plan to attend a regularly scheduled student-led tour (see below). We are unable to accommodate "walk-in" requests for admission tours.

Also, be advised that the CVM is a secure access facility. All guests (other than those here for regularly scheduled tours-schedule below) must make an appointment and have their CVM sponsor escort them through the buildings. This policy applies to the following but is not limited to: vendors, merchants, service technicians, prospective applicants, former faculty, staff and students and the general public.
