Campus tours

Students planning to register for undergraduate studies at the University of Ottawa have many opportunities to learn about our institution and programs, such as campus tours. Our campus tour offers an overview of the University of Ottawa's main campus.

If you are planning on applying to a Master’s or a PhD program, please contact the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies at gradcomm@uOttawa.ca.

Campus tour schedule

Campus tours at the University of Ottawa take place six days a week, Monday to Saturday.

Campus tours begin in Tabaret Hall, in front of room 101 and last about an hour and a half. Once you have completed your campus tour registration, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with parking and tour information.

Please arrive on time. If you are late, we will not be able to accommodate you because our Student Ambassadors are only available during the scheduled time.
