Family Weekend Virtual Visits

UA Virtual Campus Tour

You really don’t know The University of Alabama until you’ve seen our campus. We’re excited to bring UA to you through a virtual reality campus tour guided by our Capstone Men & Women. This 360-video tour can be viewed on your computer or a smartphone. If you have access to a virtual reality headset, experience Tuscaloosa for yourself.

Virtual Campus Information Sessions

The University of Alabama is hosting virtual information sessions each weekday to provide opportunities for students and families who are unable to visit campus at this time. We’re offering college/interest-specific sessions, broad admissions information programs and virtual chats with our UA Student Ambassadors to offer the same information you would have during an on-campus visit. You can schedule a Virtual Campus Information Session here.
