Project Spotlight

University of Virginia Virtual Tour Initiative

This program entails working with student communities and offices to craft an online tour experience of grounds. We have identified the company YouVisit as the premiere vendor to help us create this experience. Between our market research and personal conversations with YouVisit representatives, it is evident that they will provide the best technological support available while simultaneously allowing autonomy in producing the final product. YouVisit currently provides over 500 online virtual tours, including several of our peer institutions (Yale, Harvard, Vanderbilt, Penn State, etc.). Together, we will craft an online tour so that high schoolers from all over the world can “see” grounds for themselves, hopefully inspiring prospective students to make an in-person visit who may not have otherwise. A virtual tour provides the ability to showcase spaces, resources, and communities, as well as functions as a continued resource for prospective students throughout the application process.
