Pilot-for-a-Day Visit

Our Student Ambassadors arrange tailored visits to make the most of your time on the Bluff: attend a class, tour campus, have lunch with a current student, spend the night and more! Make sure you contact them at least 2 weeks before your visit so they can contact professors, hosts, etc. Thank you!   

Class Visit
UP professors welcome prospective students to their classes, available to high school juniors and seniors only. Class visits are offered Monday-Friday, September through April.

Overnight Visit
Experience what it is like to live on campus by staying overnight in one of our residence halls. Student-hosts share their rooms with you, take you to their classes and introduce you to their friends. This program is available Monday-Thursday during the academic school year and is limited to high school seniors (17 or 18 yrs old).

Overnight visits are not available from May 1st-November 10th.

Please bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and any other personal items you might need.  UP provides your meals at no cost.
Check-in no later than 3:30 p.m.
All students staying overnight must submit a signed liability waiver form when they arrive. 

Check in for both class and overnight visits in the Office of Admissions, 2nd Floor of Waldschmidt Hall.
