Visiting VUU

CURRENT UPDATE DUE TO COVID-19 (Coronavirus): 1/26/2021

We are not accepting any campus tours due to state restrictions issued by our Governor. We will resume in person tours following the Labor Day Holiday on Tuesday, September 7, 2021. Until then please check out our Virtual Campus Tour! 


Virginia Union University (VUU) offer the traditional campus visit with an informational session and a walking tour of campus. Register online prior to your visit, as some information sessions fill quickly and once seating capacity has been reached, the session will be closed. Please submit the Request a Tour Form. Group requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to requested visit date. Allow at least three business days for our office to respond to your Campus Visit Request. Please note requests are not confirmed until visiting party has received a confirmation email. 

Please plan to eat meals before or after your scheduled tour. Meals will not be provided on campus. Outside food and drinks are not allowed on campus. Don't forget to stop by the VUU Bookstore to pick up VUU Swag, or purchase something online before you visit!

​Please do not contact current students directly about conducting a campus tour.
