CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
Due to concerns around the COVID-19 virus, UC Merced leadership has decided to cancel all tours until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
After detailed and thoughtful discussion, we believe this is the best decision for our students, staff and guests. While there are no confirmed cases at UC Merced at this time, we believe that it is important for communities to look out for one another and to do what is best for global and UC Merced communities.
If you would like to reschedule your group tour for after April 20, please contact Welcome Center coordinator Juan Román at 209-201-5601 or email@example.com.
