Visit Campus

The best way to determine if UMass Lowell is a good fit for you is to visit campus, meet our people and picture yourself here. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers a variety of virtual options for exploring campus, including student-led virtual tours, information sessions, one-on-one chats, a Junior Preview Day in the spring and Open Houses in the fall.
