Start your tour here.

Located on the first floor of One Waterfront Place in Morgantown’s Wharf District, the WVU Downtown Visitors Center offers twice-daily weekday and Saturday campus tours for prospective students interested in pursuing a degree in the areas of business, liberal arts or physical sciences. This Downtown-centric tour explores the historical heart of campus which is home to the Mountainlair Student Union and Woodburn Circle. 

Students who are undecided and students interested in Saturday tours are also directed to this location. While the Reed College of Media is also located Downtown, campus tours for these students are held at the WVU Evansdale Visitors Center due to close proximity to the Reed College’s Media Innovation Center.
