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. If an event is no longer listed, that means it has reached capacity.
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, use the calendar function available on the home page or event page, and simply select the date that interests you.
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, click on the event type you are interested in on the home page or use the event-type dropdown on the event search page.
If you are searching for an admitted student event, you will need to log-in using your NetID and select the “Admitted Student Event” button.
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 (Google or Twitter), or you can create an account on our web site.
If you have submitted an application or are an admitted student and have never before created an account, you do not have to create a new account. Simply log in to Visit Bucky using your NetID and password.
If you have created an account and have forgotten your password information, we can reset it for you and send you a new password.
After you have logged in, you will be able to add events to your cart.
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 all your desired events are in your cart, click on the "Register for Event" button.
You will then be prompted to submit registration information, like number of attendees, registrant name, and email address.
When entering the name of the registrant, please use the student’s name. Please do not use parent/guardian names.
After you have completed the registration form, click the "Confirm this Reservation" button to complete the registration process.
After you confirm 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 website.
Important note: You will not be registered for the event until you confirm your reservation and receive a confirmation email.
Canceling/modifying a reservation
If you need to cancel or modify your reservation, log in to Visit Bucky and select "my reservations" from the navigation bar. 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 of your event by going to "my reservations" in the navigation bar and clicking on the name of the event or checking your confirmation email.
If you are coming to an event on campus, please see our maps and directions page. Please leave ample time to find parking prior to your event.
