What is the difference between the Downtown Visitors Center and Evansdale Visitors Center?

The Downtown Visitors Center specifically serves students interested in undergraduate majors based on the Downtown area of campus.

The Evansdale Visitors Center serves students interested in undergraduate majors based on the Evansdale and Health Sciences areas of campus.

Prospective students will still gain exposure to all areas of campus regardless of participating in a Downtown- or Evansdale-based tour. However, tour timing will be prioritized to predominantly feature the area of campus housing the student’s major of interest.

Can I tour the residence halls if I come to campus? 

A stop at one of the University's residence halls, Oakland Hall, is included on the campus tour. Access to residence halls outside of the guided campus tour is not allowed at this time. We recommended using the  YouVisit virtual housing tour to view interior spaces and amenitie s of all residence halls.

Does WVU accommodate large-group tours?

We offer tours throughout the year to group sizes of 10+. Group visits must be requested at least one month in advance.  Learn more and request this type of visit experience here.

Will my pet be permitted on the tour and in the Visitors Center?

Certified service animals are permitted on tour and inside the Visitors Center. All other animals and pets are not permitted.
