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.
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, July 13-14, and July 20-21 -- others are likely). 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 07/15/2019)
Programs and tours through August 31, 2019 are now available for online registration! A comprehensive list of tours and programs for the remainder of 2019 (September 1 - December 31) is now available for viewing. — Registration for these programs will be available starting at 9:00am Pacific Time on Thursday, August 1.
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.
