Please continue to check back for updates.

Prior to submitting your tour request, please review the following:

For planning purposes, please request tours at least four weeks in advance. All tours are tentative until you are contacted by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions with a confirmation. All groups will be contacted regarding their request within 2–3 business days. If we have not responded to you within that time, please contact our Group Tour Coordinators at (619) 260-4506.

Priority for tour guides and information sessions will be given to middle school- and high school-aged groups. Unless otherwise stated, all other groups will not be offered an information session.

If your group would like to buy and eat lunch on campus, please note that we can only accommodate lunch for groups before 11:45 a.m. and after 1:45 p.m. in our Pavilion Dining area. Set menus are available for groups of 20 or more at $10.75 per person.
