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 joining us in classes. 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. Schedule your visit to Richmond today. We’re so excited to meet you.

Making the Most of Your College Road Trip
Let’s be honest. Richmond’s campus is beautiful any time of year, but there’s something especially magical about fall. Maybe it’s the nostalgia of back to school, or the changing leaves on one of the country’s most beautiful campuses! Regardless of the reason, it is a wonderful time to welcome visitors from all over the country and the world to campus.
