Daily Tour Registration
Daily tours are led by a current USD student and include a 90-minute walking tour of campus followed by an optional 30-minute information session led by an admission representative. We do not limit the size of our tours and are able to accommodate all registered visitors on days that our office is open and tour guides are available. Please see below regarding office closures and days with limited tour guide availability.
Office Closures and Self-Guided Tour Dates
Prior to registering for a tour, please take note of the dates below. By checking the “Tour Availability” column, you will be able to see when our office will be CLOSED as well as when we will be offering SELF-GUIDED TOURS. On self-guided tour dates, we will do our best to secure student tour guides but cannot guarantee their availability due to the University's academic and holiday schedules.
When registering for a self-guided campus tour, please make sure to arrive on time, as the Admission Team will provide you with a 30-minute information session prior to giving you instructions for your self-guided tour of campus.

Visitors to our campus must park in the West Parking Structure. Payment is required Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Parking rates are as follows:
- 0-2 hours: $1.50 per hour
- 3-4 hours: $1.00 per hour
- Full day: $8.00 (daily maximum)
We utilize a pay-by-plate parking system. This means that a license plate number is required when making a payment at the pay station in your parking area. If you will be driving a rental car during your visit, it may be helpful to take a picture of your license plate after you park your vehicle. Once you have made your payment, there is no need to display your receipt on your dashboard. You also have the option to pre-purchase a daily permit using the online customer portal.
In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the "Clery Act"), the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is available for your review. This report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the University of San Diego; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, campus. You may obtain a print copy of this report at the Department of Public Safety, located in the Hughes Administration Center, Room 150.
