Information sessions and walking tours are given year-round, while classes are in session. Please make a reservation online prior to your visit. Once seating capacity has been reached, the session will be closed and will no longer appear in the reservation system. We suggest that you try to make arrangements to attend another day.
Please note that for the safety and security of our students, walking tours will not go inside residence halls. Virtual tours of the residence halls are available on the Housing website. See the bottom of this page for information about touring individual schools and academic departments.
