Visit UMass Boston

Campus Tours, Info Sessions, and Special Admissions Events

Come spend a few hours with us -- walk the halls, talk to current students, grab a bite in one of our dining halls or cafés, relax with a view of the water, and just soak it all in. (For directions and transportation options, visit our Getting Here section.)

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
