Self Guided Walking Tours

Benefits of a Self Guided Walking Tour:

  • You can visit campus at your own time during regular hours (8:00am-4:30pm).
  • You can tour campus even if our office is closed or the university is closed during a holiday.  Be sure to check in with Public Safety (#25 on campus map) when you arrive on campus.
  • You can do the tour at the pace of your group as opposed to the pace of a tour guide.
  • You can take breaks at your convenience.
  • With the correct number of chaperons, you can break your group into smaller and more manageable groups as opposed to a tour with only one guide.
