Quick tips

Here's some helpful information for the day of your visit. 

1. Wear comfortable shoes. The average tour lasts 1 hour and covers almost 3/4 of a mile. 

2. Check the weather before you come. It can be hot, cold, rainy or windy depending on the time of year, so be sure to dress appropriately.

3. Have questions prepared for your tour guide. We know you've traveled a long way to get here, so we want to make sure you get your questions answered. 

4. If you'd like to preorder or view our different dining options, you can visit our dining service catering website.

5. Meet our tour guides, who can share with you a wealth of information about their experiences at UC Merced.
