On their official websites, many colleges provide virtual or online tours of their schools and campuses for prospective students and their parents. Another way to take online tours of colleges and universities is to visit sites such as YouVisit.com and CampusTours.com to view maps, walking tours and videos.
An ideal option to take an online tour of a college is to go directly to the official website for a specific school. For example, Harvard University provides an online tour. To take the tour, click on the Admissions tab on Harvard.edu, and on the next generated page, click on the Launch Virtual Tour logo to access the tour for this school. This tour takes people to different points of interest around the campus such as the Science Center, Widener Library and Annenberg Hall.
Visitors to CampusTours.com can use the search tool for finding virtual tours of colleges in the United States and other countries including France and the United Kingdom. It is possible to search college by school name, country and state. Similarly, YouVisit.com also provides tours of schools that include Yale University, Dartmouth College, Syracuse University, Mississippi State University and Kent State University. To find a virtual tour of a particular college, students or parents can use the search tool found at the websites and enter in the college's name.
