Campus Tours

Whether you are a prospective BYU student or a family member of a BYU hopeful, there is nothing like actually visiting BYU to get a feel for all the things that make BYU great. Visitors are always welcome on campus, and we invite you to participate in one of our personalized tours that are tailored for prospective students and their families.

Campus Tour

Tours should be scheduled prior to your visit. Tours leave on the hour and are available Monday through Friday. The first tour leaves at 9 a.m. and the final tour leaves at 4 p.m., with the exception of Tuesday at 11 a.m., when the campus is closed for the weekly university devotional.

Tours are 50 minutes long and include information on the admissions process, academic departments, overall campus life, financial aid, scholarships, and extracurricular opportunities.

If you are thinking about attending BYU and are interested in a personalized campus tour, please schedule one online by visiting tours.byu.edu.

Virtual Tour

We also offer a Virtual Tour of campus.

Honor Code

The university expects that all students, regardless of religion, will maintain the behavioral standards of the school, including the Honor Code. These include high standards of honesty, integrity, chastity, morality, and dress and grooming, in addition to abstinence from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse. To read the Honor Code Statement, please visit the BYU Policy website.

Devotionals and Forums

University devotionals and forums form an inspirational and integral part of the university experience. These assemblies are occasions to celebrate the shared sense of community and values in the university. Participation in these gatherings will renew spiritual commitment and extend knowledge of significant religious, intellectual, and cultural matters.

Devotional speakers, selected from the leaders of the Church as well as the university personnel, come to teach the gospel and affirm the spiritual dimension of the university experience for students, faculty, and staff.

Forum speakers are noted authorities in the arts, sciences, humanities, media, and government. They are chosen for their contributions to their field and their ability to communicate their insights. Participation in these assemblies (and in the discussion sessions that may accompany them) prompts inquiry into an understanding of significant intellectual, cultural, and social issues.

Devotionals are held every Tuesday at 11:05 a.m. Most campus offices and services are closed during university devotionals and forums so that members of the university community may participate.
