Hi everyone! I hope you’re enjoying a breather after all your hard work this semester.
Alongside all the online pomp and circumstance of the official UR Degree Conferral, some of your fellow students have been hard at work creating a virtual River Campus in Minecraft! Virtual UR will be unveiling their work and sharing the server info tomorrow. So check it out if you want to virtually stroll through the Wilson Quad as a graduate!
The announcement from Virtual UR is below:
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.
To get in on the action early, join our VIP event at 7:30 PM Eastern Time, half an hour before the main event.
- Get a special guided tour of the world
- Enjoy a virtual meet-and-greet with a few of the Virtual UR world developers
- Have their name etched in the walls of the Virtual UR tunnel system

Don’t own Minecraft?
Not to worry – you can still fully participate in the VIP event. No prior Minecraft experience is necessary.
