Take a CVAD Tour

Thank you for your interest in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas. CVAD offers year round student-led tours of CVAD’s facilities only.  This tour will give prospective students an opportunity to get a current student’s point of view and see where they create their art.  This tour does not discuss admissions, scholarships, curriculum or portfolio reviews.  If you are interested in that information, please sign up for a prospective student advising session at http://art.unt.edu/forms/prospective-student-advising.

If you are a prospective student and would like to come to campus for a tour, please go to http://art.unt.edu/forms/tour-signup to register. Please fill out all the required fields and you will receive an email with additional information about your visit after you submit your form.

The deadline to sign up for all tours is a minimum of 24 hours prior to the scheduled tour start time. If you are wanting to sign up for a tour and it is less than 24 hours prior to the tour, please call Elyce Franks, Assistant to the Dean at 940-565-4003 to check availability.

Tours of the main UNT campus are also available. It is highly recommended that you take the UNT tour prior to the CVAD tour. The CVAD tour is CVAD specific and will not answer general questions about UNT, Admissions, Housing or Scholarship opportunities. Please visit http://tours.unt.edu to sign up for a UNT tour.

If you are interested in bringing a school group or other organization to campus for a tour, please email elyce.franks@unt.edu or call her at 940-565-4003 to arrange a time for your organization.  The number of group tours that can be accommodated is limited so please call early if you are interested in bringing your school group or organization.

We look forward to seeing you on campus.
