Even with a casual stroll through this beautiful campus, you can't help but to immerse yourself in the history of Arizona's college system. Old historic buildings are intermingled with late 20th century buildings and to add a jewels to this crown of buildings there are environmentally responsible buildings that will meet the needs of future learners. Excellent signage, lots of... More

Walk the campus, enjoy local botany, cherish the buildings. And don't forget to go to the annual American Indian art show. Music, lectures, plays, it's all here. Much of it is free. And don't forget the annual book fair either.

Returned for a visit after obtaining my graduate degree in the 70s. Went on a weekend when the parking on campus is free. There is a light rail stop if you want to go downtown. I strolled the Bookstore which has all you can think of for memorabilia. Then over to the student union where the have a very nice... More

You can't visit Tucson and not visit the University of Arizona. It is a beautifully laid -out school, easy to walk around, with paid public parking easily available. Don't miss walking down the mall and ending at Old Main, the original campus building. The Student Union has a wonderful bookstore with goodies for the Wildcats fan.

Took my family to U of A because my son likes the Wildcats. We visited the McKale Center, since the school is known for its basketball. Was surprised to find out their sports museum is free. Visited on a weekday when campus was on semester break. Plenty to see if you're an Arizona fan. I liked seeing all the trophies... More

Nothing like a home game at McKale Center. Great crowd, ZonaZoo student section, and overall vibe at this great university

I have been traveling to the campus for over five years now. It is really a beautiful place and the location near the downtown of Tucson is convenient, especially with the light rail train that crosses the campus and connects the downtown. The State of Arizona is now ranked dead last in the USA for academic spending. Let's hope the... More

No parking for visitors! We ended up parking a half mile away and walked around a lot looking for different buildings. The campus is nice, we loved the modern architecture and the art department buildings are awesome. We didn't get to see a lot since most buildings were closed for Christmas break. I would suggest having tours still for future... More
