Self-Guided Tours

On days that we don't host campus tours, take in all that the College of Charleston has to offer at your own pace. Collect your self-guided walking tour from the Office of Admissions (65 George Street), or download a campus map, and head over to the iconic Cistern Yard for the beginning of your adventure. Learn the history behind each of our buildings, and spend a little extra time at the stops most relevant to what will be your College of Charleston experience. 

Campus Tours

Our campus visit is the best way for you to discover if the College of Charleston fits your academic and personal interests. Visiting campus provides insights you simply can’t get through word-of-mouth or websites. We begin our campus tour with a 30-minute info session, where one of our admissions counselors provides key insight into the admission process, financial aid, scholarship opportunities, and more. Afterward, a student tour guide will lead you across our beautiful campus lasting approximately 75-minutes. And, you can ask them anything. No question is off limits and they love to share!

Our tours are very popular! So be sure to reserve your space at least two weeks prior to visiting campus. Once you've signed up, we'll send you an email confirmation with more information. We offer tours year round on weekdays and some Saturdays. Before making your travel plans, check available tour dates and times and then make your tour reservation.

Contact your admissions counselor if you have questions or concerns regarding your campus visit. 


Classroom Visit

The Office of Admissions is happy to invite all high school juniors and seniors to attend a class at the College of Charleston. Sitting in on a class is a great way to gain first-hand experience on what the College has to offer you academically. Class Visits are available Monday through Friday during the fall semester to all high school juniors and seniors, and during the spring semester to seniors only.

Before making your arrangements, please make sure to double check dates and times to make sure classes are in session during your visit. You can click here to reference our school calendars. You can then click here to register for a class visit on our event registration page. Thank you and we look forward to having you on campus! 

Video Tours

Tour our academic, dining, athletics and recreational facilities as well as residence halls on YouTube

Virtual Tour

There’s nothing better than seeing and experiencing the College of Charleston firsthand. There’s no other campus like ours. (It’s more like a hip, vibrant neighborhood than a fenced-off institution!) However, we welcome you to explore the College from your very own home. So, take the virtual tour to familiarize yourself with campus. But then, schedule the real thing!

Group Tours

We are happy to arrange special tours for groups sponsored by a school or organization. Group tours can accommodate 10 to 60 guests and are scheduled Tuesday through Thursday on the same calendar as regularly scheduled tours (no school holidays or days where only information sessions are offered). Once you’ve selected a date, complete our Group Tour Request Form and we will happily work with you to organize your visit. Please note that submitting this form does not confirm your plans, your visit is not guaranteed until you receive a confirmation email from our campus visit coordinator.

If you are coming on your own with just a few family and friends, rather than requesting a group tour, you will need to register for one of our regularly scheduled campus tours.
