Can’t make it to campus? Don’t sweat it—UChicago is bringing campus to you! On a 360° Virtual Visit, you can experience UChicago’s Hyde Park campus from all angles (literally!), with panoramic views of campus, insights from a current student, and lots and lots of fun facts about UChicago. It really is the next-best thing to seeing campus in person! Take in the sights on your computer, or strap on a pair VR goggles for some extra immersion.
If you received a pair of VR Cardboard UChigoggles in the mail (or happen to have some lying around at home), you may find assembling them to be a bit of a puzzle. Watch this instructional video on VR Cardboard Assembly for help with putting them together!
