We are working to make sure every UR student who wants to participate in Virtual UR events will be given the opportunity. As events are confirmed, we will post them here, with links and instructions for how to participate.

Virtual UR Grand Opening

Our first event – the Virtual UR Grand Opening – will be launching Friday, May 15 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time. At that time, the Minecraft server IP will be made public on this site so we can join and experience Virtual UR together.

VIP members:

  • Get a special guided tour of the world
