How to Use the Web Tour
The Undergraduate Admissions Web Tour is a video tour of The University of Alabama. It can be viewed in several different ways:
- You can watch it online.
- You can download the tour to your mobile device as a video podcast.
- If you come to campus at a time when all guided tour slots are booked, we have the web tour loaded onto iPads in our office and in the UA Welcome Center so you can watch while you're on campus. (Note: The video is not designed to be a step-by-step walking tour, but it will help you become more familiar with some of what you see while you're here.)
The tour is divided into 8 chapters, with an average length of approximately 4 minutes. Some chapters are longer and some are shorter. If you watch all the videos back to back, it should take about 30 minutes to view the whole thing.
Trouble watching videos in web browser
We use a service called Vimeo to host the video files for this website. The Vimeo player does not support certain web browsers, including Internet Explorer versions 6 and 7. If you are using one of these browsers, you may want to update to a more recent version.
Scheduling a campus visit
The best way to learn about campus is through a guided tour, which you can schedule through our main website.
