On-Campus Programs

Immerse yourself in our world of fearless ideas by checking out our on-campus special events.

Registration for our on-campus programs opens approximately four to eight weeks prior to each event. After you register for a visit, you’ll receive a confirmation email sent to the email address used to register.

If you can't make it for one of our on-campus programs, check out our daily visit options which include the TERPlife Terrapin Tour mobile app. 

As a newly admitted UMD student, you and your family are invited to join us for an Admitted Student Open House. During the event, you’ll spend the morning with faculty and staff from your admitted college, and meet with students and campus representatives throughout the afternoon as you learn more about the university’s special programs and exciting student life. Our next Admitted Student Open House events will be held in February, March and April of 2020. Registration is required.

Join us at the end of the spring semester for the annual Maryland Day celebration and discover why so many exceptional students are choosing the University of Maryland. Stop by our tent on McKeldin Mall to learn about applying to UMD, connect with a Financial Aid representative and take a student-led tour of campus. The next Maryland Day event will be held in April 2020. Registration is not required and the event is open to the public.

During the college application process, it's important for you to experience campus first-hand. The Fall Open House, held next in Fall 2020, is a great opportunity for prospective students and their families to learn about everything the University of Maryland has to offer. You'll speak with faculty members, meet current students, take tours of campus and learn more about UMD’s admissions process. Registration is required.

As you make your way through the college search process, come see for yourself why UMD could be the right fit for you. Join us at Discover Maryland to learn more about the university, our academic offerings and student life. Please note that this event is designed for high school sophomores and juniors and their families. Our next Discover Maryland event will be held in February 2021. Registration is required and will become available in January 2021.

You can only learn so much about a school from a brochure. Even if we tell you how beautiful our campus is, or how fantastic our students and faculty are, you will not know for yourself until you experience it for yourself!

Come try on our campus for size! Stop by one of our top-notch athletic facilities. Have a scoop of homemade ice cream at the Dairy. Rub the nose of one of our beloved Testudo statues for good luck. Get all your questions answered. It won't be hard to picture yourself at home here for the next four years.
