During your campus tour, you'll hear the story about a cannonball that almost interrupted classes, find out when our students wear all white, and where to catch a movie crew filming on campus.
Campus tours start at Admissions in Craig Hall, 65 George Street (number 91 on our campus map). An admissions counselor will start your tour with a 30-minute information session. Then one of our student tour guides will take you on a 75-minute walking tour of campus. Usually you'll visit a residence hall, the library, classroom buildings and the Stern Student Center. Please allow two hours for your visit.
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 e-mail confirmation with additional information. We offer tours year round on weekdays and some Saturdays. Before making your travel plans, check our tour calendar for available dates and times. Then make your tour reservation.
On days that we don't host campus tours, you can download a self-guided walking tour map, or pick one up from Admissions in Craig Hall at 65 George Street (#91 on the map).
