Admitted Cougar Events provide recently admitted students and their families interactive opportunities to learn more about the College of Charleston before making the decision to enroll. Plan to join us for in person and virtual events this spring.

 On days or times 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. 

The College of Charleston welcomes groups to come and take a tour of campus. Group tours are reserved for groups of 10 or more guests from high schools or community organizations. We schedule group tours Tuesday – Thursday after 12:30 p.m. due to guide availability and working around our daily tours.

Additionally, we limit the group sizes to no more than 60 people including chaperones. The College of Charleston does require all groups to be accompanied by chaperones. Please be aware that during peak visit seasons or when campus is closed, we will not offer group tours.

Please fill out the form here to request a group tour and our Group Tour Coordinator will be in contact about availability. Please submit your request no later than 2 weeks before your preferred date.

Currently, we are unable to host K-8 groups to campus due to the high volume of visitors. If you are a K-8 group, you are more than welcome to visit campus and pick up a self-guided walking tour brochure and walk around campus. We can also point out some areas on campus that may be interesting to your younger students. If you have any questions please reach out to
