Undergraduate Admission

Visit the place you’ll love to call home

Your campus visit is so much more than seeing the beauty of our campus firsthand. It’s more than meeting our Spider community and discovering the Richmond student experience. It’s more than walking our 350 acres of brickwork, gardens, and walkways. And it’s more than eating our award-winning food … though that’s definitely a nice perk.

Your campus visit is about envisioning your life as a Spider and seeing the place where you’ll learn, grow, flourish, and call home for years to come. We’re so excited to meet you.
