North Campus Walking Tour
North Campus, the home of Michigan Engineering, is a hub of creativity — where engineering, art, music and design students co-exist. Filled with creative spaces, public art installations, world-class facilities and state-of-the-art labs, North Campus is the ideal environment for innovation.
Students who come to Michigan Engineering say they knew they were going to love it the minute they stepped onto campus. Come see what they're talking about with a prospective student walking tour.
Michigan Engineering also offers Segway tours throughout the spring and summer, beginning in May. This unique experience will allow prospective students, families and alumni the opportunity to explore more of North Campus than is possible on a walking tour of the College.
Segway tour guests will participate in the Engineering Information Session, along with walking tour guests, at 2 p.m. At the conclusion of the Information Session, tour guests will be trained to ride Segways and then tour North Campus until 4:30 p.m.
Tour guests must be at least 14 years of age, must weigh between 100-260 pounds, and will be required to sign a waiver prior to participating in the Segway tour.
