Tours


Family/Individual

Visit the campus and bring up to four guests. The one-hour walking tour (that takes place in a group setting) showcases campus facilities and provides a general overview of academic programs, student support services and campus life.

We recommend that reservations be made in advance; space is limited and tours fill quickly. Dates are added intermittently so check online frequently for updates. Once a tour has reached capacity, you will not be able to select that tour. To register, visit Family/Individual Tours.

Note: Housing tours are not included in this tour. Visit Housing & Residential Life for more information.

Group (Schools / Organizations)

Note: If you are registering your family, review the "Family/Individual" tours section above. "Group" tours are only provided for large groups, such as school groups, church groups and community organizations.

This one-hour walking tour allows large groups (usually 10 or more) the opportunity to visit CSULB. This tour highlights campus facilities and provides an overview of academic programs, student support services and campus life.

We recommend that you register for a tour at the beginning of the semester you would like to visit our campus. Space is limited and tours fill quickly. If we are unable to accommodate your group, consider our Self-Guided Tour as another opportunity to explore our campus. Once a tour date has booked, you will not be able to select that tour.

Due to the high demand for group tours, we give first priority to scheduling groups with students ready to transition into the university, and schools and colleges in our local area (see chart below).
