MOR Group Visitations

Thank you for your interest in visiting the University of Washington! The Multicultural Outreach & Recruitment (MOR) office looks forward to hosting you on campus.

MOR Group Visitations consist of a 30-minute admission presentation and a 75-minute tour, led by a MOR Student Ambassador. MOR Group Visitations provide a great introduction to the University of Washington, highlight the collection of services offered by the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity (OMA&D) and MOR Student Ambassadors share their experience of being a University of Washington Student.

Who We Serve

MOR Group Visitations are only offered to Washington State high schools and community college students.  We work closely with schools and community-based partners who serve students from low-income, first-generation and historically underrepresented backgrounds.  Given the high volume of tours requested, priority consideration will be given to groups consisting of high school juniors, high school seniors, and prospective transfer students. Unfortunately, we do not serve middle school students.

  • Washington state high school students
  • Washington state community college students from low-income and historically underrepresented populations

We strongly encourage groups with significant proportions of African American, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian/Alaska Native, Southeast Asian, or Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander students to seek our assistance in planning a tour. As part of our commitment to serving underrepresented communities of color, we will make every effort to ensure that your group gains exposure to a wide variety of resources the UW has to offer.

Plan Your Visit

Regardless of your vaccination status, when at a UW Campus or facility, please continue to wear a mask indoors when other people are present and when you are in common areas, and outdoors when you can’t maintain a six-foot distance from others.

In advance of the tour we ask that you, and all guests registered for the tour, complete the COVID-19 attestation form. Regardless of vaccination status, all campus visitors must complete this form.
