Visit SF State - Campus Tours

Visit the SF State Campus by taking advantage of one or more of our various tour options:

Student Guided Campus Tours

Our fun and informative walking tours are a great way for prospective students and their families to get to know our campus. Lasting less than an hour, the tour takes visitors to major buildings and facilities on the University's park-like campus, located in the southwest corner of San Francisco near Lake Merced.

Tours are led by SF State student guides who share their own experiences adjusting to university life and offer tips to help incoming students get the most out of their SF State education. For more information on guided tours, visit the Student Outreach website at www.sfsu.edu/outreach/visiting.htm. There you will find the current tour schedule, which changes daily.
