Incredibly poor handicapped access and signage

This place is a nightmare for a handicapped visitor. You are treated like DIRT. No information poor access terrible signage and a real negative attitude by staff.

This is where I went to college, so we (my Mom & I) were re-visiting the grounds. I love all of the new additions (I graduated in 2007). They added some great eateries which is now making me jealous that I'm not attending now :) I recommend everyone visit when you travel to Tucson.

This is a stellar school, both academically and how it contributes to the community, not to mention an A1 sports department. I know this because my niece is in her senior year there and has been a great student and cheerleader. She is having a college experience beyond what one could ever imagine. I am so proud of her and... More

Our daughter was accepted to UofA so we visited the school. It is beautiful, the grounds are very well kept up and the students seem very happy and content with their choice to go to school at U of A.

This was my first visit to Tuscon and the University. I spent the day on campus with my daughter touring the campus, housing and departments of interest to my child. Although large, it felt safe, , even at night, and we met enough involved students that it changed the "party perception" we initially had.

the renovation of Old Main created another outstanding stop on a tour of the UA campus. Essentially, they've created a mini museum in the large hallway areas outside the president's offices. Visitors will see examples of world-class photography, Native American art, minerals and UA artifacts. This is the first building on campus and has a very interesting history.

From February to the end of May, the most exciting spectator sport in Tucson is, hands down, the University of Arizona Women’s Softball team. Their games are played in the Rita Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium and fans know that the school will field nationally competitive teams. The Wildcats have won numerous Conference, Regional, and National Championships. For those who have not... More

Arizona University Mirror lab is world class state of the art production facility. We took the lab tour and lecture. It was highly educational and ground breaking. Highly recommend this tour open to the public.

Liked ease of commute between buildings, liked the 4th street area just outside campus. Dislike so many street people begging.
