Visit Bucky allows you to search and register for events offered by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Office of Admissions and Recruitment and other campus partners. Unless otherwise noted, these events are free of charge. Our events have limited capacity and may or may not be listed on this web site.

Searching for events

Visit Bucky has two primary search mechanisms. You can search by date (single date and date range) and by event type. To search by a particular date, simply click on the day you are interested in on the calendar available on the home page or the event search page. To search by a date range, enter a start and end date (in mm/dd/yyyy format) on the event search page. To search by event type, either click on the event type you are interested in on the home page or use the event type pulldown on the event search page.

Creating an account

To register for an event, you will need to create an account and log in to Visit Bucky. You can log in via a social login (Facebook, Google or Twitter), or you can create an account on our web site. After you have logged in, you will be able to add events to your cart. If you have created an account and have forgotten your password information, we can reset it for you and send you a new password.

Registering for an event

When you find an event you are interested in, you will want to click the "add" button to add it to your cart. When you have added all of the events you want to register for in your cart, click on the "Register" button. After you click the "Register" button you will be prompted for registration information like the number of attendees, registrant name and email address. Please enter the name of the registrant (ex: if you are a parent/guardian scheduling a visit for your child, please enter the prospective student information). After you have completed the registration form, click the "Confirm" button to confirm your reservation and complete the registration process.

Important note: You will not be registered for the event until you confirm your reservation.

After you have confirmed your reservation, you will receive a confirmation email with the details of your reservation. You can check the details of your reservation at any time by going to the "my reservations" section of the web site.

Canceling/modifying a reservation

If you need to cancel or modify your reservation, just log in to Visit Bucky and go to "my reservations". You can either cancel your registration for an event, or modify the number of attendees for the event.

Reviewing your reservation/visiting campus

Before your event takes place, please check the location information attached to your event. You can see that information by going to "my reservations" and clicking on the name of the event. If you are coming to an event on campus, please see our maps and directions page. Please leave ample time for finding parking prior to your event.
