Guided and Self-Guided Campus Tours for Undergraduates

Thank you for your interest in our campus tours. In order to comply with the health mandate to prevent the spread of COVID-19, SF State's in-person tours and information sessions have been suspended until further notice

We strongly encourage those interested in seeing the campus to join us for a virtual tour! Our Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Recruitment offers guided virtual tours, led by a terrific team of student ambassadors. We also have a self-guided virtual tour option available.

Campus Visits & Tour Requests

If you wish to explore the campus, guests are always welcome to utilize our self-guided tour options. For more information on self-guided tours, please click here for more details. Please remember that although visitors are free to explore our grounds so long as they adhere to the City of San Francisco rules regarding mask wearing and social distancing. It is important to note that building access is restricted to authorized employees and students only. Campus amenities, including public restrooms, are not open to visitors at this time. Thank you for your understanding.

Guided Campus Tours for a Future Student and their Family

SF State's virtual campus tour consists of an hour and a half tour that includes a 30-minute admission presentation followed by a one-hour virtual tour. Our tours are led by one of our amazing Tour Guides. They will guide you along the pathways outside of the campus buildings while they share general information and anecdotes about our history, as well as what they love about our University. If you are interested in registering for a virtual guided tour, please visit here:

Please note that our 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 if you click here.)

Guided Group Tours for Schools/Organizations/Community Groups

The group tours program is designed for schools, organizations and community groups interested in bringing a group of high school or community college transfer students (with chaperones) to San Francisco State University to learn more about what our university has to offer. Though we understand group tours are important, we are unable to accommodate group tours at the moment. Group tours will resume in the Fall.
