Residence Hall Tours
What will I see on the tour?
If there are specific halls you know are interested in touring, please let the tour guides know when you arrive to check in. Not sure what you want to see? That's ok! The student tour guides will talk to you about your interests and will develop a tour that fits your housing needs.
Due to time restrictions, you will only be able to choose halls on one side of campus to see during the tour. If you would like to see halls on both the east and west side, you will need to schedule two tours.
