The University of Utah offers several tours of on-campus housing. See below for options, descriptions, and scheduling.
Our office partners with the Office of Admissions to give a tour of the residence halls at Heritage Commons and the Peterson Heritage Center as a portion of General Admissions Tours. The tour includes a look at a suite-style room at Gateway Heights, the lobby of the Peterson Heritage Center, the Residence Hall Association office, and the main dining hall serving upper campus. Gateway Heights is composed of two two-story buildings, situated just west of the Peterson Heritage Center. Visiting Heritage Commons allows visitors to see the location of most on-campus housing and enjoy breathtaking views of the Wasatch Mountains.

Starting in fall 2020, Housing & Residential Education will begin offering tours of our newest residence hall, Kahlert Village. Located on lower campus, Kahlert Village is just a short walk from classes and offers a brand-new eatery on its first floor. Tours of Kahlert Village will show the first-floor lobby and eatery, the upper-story common spaces accessible by residents, and a full suite featuring a single and double room with a connecting bathroom. Check back here in the following months for more information!
For students who would like to tour the University of Utah campus and on-campus housing without scheduling a tour, we've created a self-guided tour route complete with step-by-step instructions, information on each residence hall, and maps to help you navigate campus. The first link below will take you to three self-guided tour options, while the second link will take you to maps with driving directions. Students can tour lower-campus housing, upper-campus first-year housing, and upper-campus upperclass (sophomore, junior, & senior) housing. The tour guides lead into one another so you can tour all on-campus housing, and the tours are most cohesive if you start with the lower-campus tour route.
