Campus visits conclude November 18th for the fall semester and will resume in late January 2023 for the spring semester. The campus visit calendar for the spring semester will be posted in early 2023.
Campus visits consist of a 45-minute information session directly followed by a 70-minute campus tour.
Campus tours, led by current students, are offered several times a day and last about 70-minutes. Pre-registration is required for all visitors. Our campus tours require navigation of hills and stairs, so please contact us ahead of time if anyone in your party has difficulty with mobility. Campus tours will be held outdoors and are not permitted to enter campus buildings. We encourage guests to check the weather and dress appropriately.
Group Visits (for high schools and CBOs)
Individual visitors should use the visit calendar above to sign up for a visit opportunity.
We are excited to offer group sessions for high schools, college access programs, and other organizations consisting of high school students. Group sessions are limited to high school-aged students.
If you work with middle school students and have questions about programming, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are no longer accepting requests for the fall semester. Please check back in late January to submit requests for spring semester visits.
Our campus is affectionately called "the Hill," but the hilly landscape means that the tours require navigation of steep inclines and stairs. If anyone in your party has difficulty with mobility, please include your needs in the registration form. We do have a wheelchair on-site should you need one. We are happy to work with you ahead of your visit to accommodate your needs; we may not be able to best accommodate you if not given proper notification.
You may call 617-627-3170 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
We strive to make your visit to Tufts University enjoyable.
