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. Registration for summer campus visits starting in June is now open. We’re so excited to meet you.

A Student's Perspective on the COVID Campus Experience

Like many of you, I started my senior year in the middle of a pandemic. I was beyond thrilled to finally see my friends again, but my excitement was overshadowed by my fears about COVID-19.
