Seeing is believing — and after seeing our school, you'll believe this is the place to be!

Campus tours are held Monday through Friday, rain or shine. Tours are not held during major holidays and parts of June and September. Please check the Tour Calendar for available times and to ensure that there is a tour offered on the day you wish to visit UCI.

We can't wait to see you on campus and show you around.
