Daily Tour Registration

For families and small groups of 10 or fewer, use the links below to schedule your weekday or Saturday (between November and April) visit.

We do not limit the size of our tours. We will be able to accommodate all registered visitors on days that we are open and have tour guides available. Please view the academic calendar below to see when tour guides may not be available; in these cases, an information session and self-guided tour map will be provided.

Important Update:  Visitors to our campus must pay to park in the West (Marian Way) Parking Structure. Payment is required Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:00am - 7:00pm. Rates for paid parking are as follows:

  • 0-2 hours: $1.50 per hour
  • 3-4 hours: $1.00 per hour
  • Full day: $8.00 (daily maximum)

We use a pay by license plate system and are happy to announce that you can pay for parking in paid spaces using your smartphone! Simply download the free Whoosh! app, and securely pay for your daily parking in the locations mentioned above without worrying about waiting in line at the pay station. You can also extend your paid parking remotely (up to the maximum time allotted in each location). A small transaction fee of $0.35 is added to each Whoosh! transaction.  More information can be found here:
