Self-Guided Tour

Welcome to the West Virginia University self-guided tour! Whether you're visiting campus on the weekend, prefer to explore solo, or live too far away to visit us in person, our self-guided tour gives you a comprehensive look at our beautiful campus and the key buildings in which you'll eat, sleep and study.

First, download the free self-guided tour app here. Next, open Guidebook and look for the WVU Tour guide. 

If visiting Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., we encourage guests to first stop in one of our Visitors Centers to get a self-guided tour map and parking permit for on-campus parking. Parking is free after 5:00 p.m. and on weekends. While at the Visitors Center, you can also talk with a current student tour leader and have admissions questions answered. 

Alternatively, you can grab a self-guided tour map from the blue kiosks located around campus. Find one outside of the Evansdale Crossing, Evansdale Library, Mountainlair Student Union, Health Sciences PRT platform and One Waterfront Place. You can also print one ahead of your visit using the PDF link below.

Due to campus restrictions over the summer, entrance to most buildings is prohibited including residence halls and some academic buildings.  

The tour allows you to proceed at your own pace, but usually takes about two hours to complete. 

Please call 304-293-3489 if you have any questions. Visitors Center hours can be found at
