The guided campus tour is a walking tour on pathways outside of academic buildings that takes approximately one hour and is conducted by one of our trained Student Ambassadors who welcomes the opportunity to share their experience as an undergraduate student. The guided campus tour encompasses the main academic part of the campus. Tours of other facilities are arranged through that specific department/office. (Email addresses and phone numbers of SF State departments and programs are available at www.sfsu.edu/atoz.)
Guided campus tours are conducted during the week (Monday - Friday) between 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. by reservation. Reservations are first come, first served and must be made by an adult group leader/chaperone.
Bringing Groups of Students
The Group Campus Tour Program is designed for schools, organizations and community groups interested in bringing a group of high school or college level students to learn more about what SF State has to offer. We do offer the opportunity for middle school and elementary schools to visit, but on a limited basis.
Please note that we have limited student staffing and availability for summer. Group tour reservations are given on a first come, first serve basis. If you have a particularly large group, please be prepared to be flexible.
We require one chaperone for every minor on our campus, at minimum (i.e. a group of 50 students requires 5 chaperones. We ask that chaperones be involved with the visit--participating in the group tour and monitoring student behavior). Chaperones must provide ongoing supervision for the group at all times.
SF State expects students to be respectful of each other, our student guide, staff, presenters and property. The purpose of this tour is for students to explore options in higher education and learn about some of what SF State has to offer. Though this is a fun experience and our students welcome the opportunity for students to ask questions and engage, it is important that students know that they are guests on our campus.
