Summer 2019 - Weekends at VIS (Visitor Information Services)

Daily tours continue as scheduled, though the Visitor Center itself will have limited availability on various weekends throughout the summer.
See details

Our two daily Campus Walking Tours will continue to take place as scheduled (11:30am and 3:30pm, 7 days a week) through August 30 (with the sole exception being the federal holiday of July 4, upon which the Visitor Center will be closed and no tours will be offered). The Visitor Center itself will be closed on multiple weekends this summer, including the weekends of June 29-30, July 6-7, and July 13-14). On these dates, visitor maps will be available outside the Visitor Center, and student tour guides will meet visitors outside the Visitor Center's main doors to conduct our daily tours. Further weekend scheduling updates will be forthcoming as our summer staffing information becomes available.

Updated Tour and Program Registration! (UPDATED 03/04/2019)

Programs and tour through August 30, 2019 are now available for online registration!
See details

Tours and programs up through the end of Summer Quarter (and through August 30) are currently posted for online registration. Additional program offerings during this time period may be added as scheduling availability allows. Registration for programs and tours beyond August 30 will be available on or before July 15, 2019. PLEASE NOTE that we do not generally offer our "Specialty Tours" (Engineering Quad, Humanities & Arts, Athletics & Recreational Opportunities) nor our Monday/Friday "Student Forum" in between the end of Spring Quarter and the beginning of Fall Quarter. You can watch this website for the possible occasional addition of any of these programs, but we ask that you do not call to inquire about them. During the summer we are generally unable to know on a consistent basis if we we will be able to offer these tours and programs any sooner than 1-2 weeks ahead of time. Our guides will be happy to assist you with information on how to visit this areas when you arrive on campus.
