Undergraduate Student Tour
Interested in applying for undergraduate admissions at SF State? Taking a guided campus tour (during our Fall and Spring semesters) is the best way to get acquainted with our university.
Our undergraduate student tour is a free, general walking tour on pathways outside of the main academic buildings that takes approximately one hour and is conducted by one of our trained student tour guides who welcomes the opportunity to share their university experience as an undergraduate student. This tour is only available to a high school or college transfer student with his/her family (maximum 3 per family) and takes place in a group setting with other students and their family. (Sorry, groups from any school or organization are not allowed on this tour.)
Scheduling a Tour during Fall 2014 - September to mid-December
Reservations are required (one per student) and are made online at this site. Click on the date link of your desired date/time below to make a reservation. If our dates and times do not fit your schedule, our self-guided tour is available for you to tour the campus on your own at any time, and reservations are not required and check-in is not needed. Visit www.sfsu.edu/outreach/self.htm for the available options.
You will need to print out your confirmation for your records. Please make sure your printer is connected (and ready to print) before you submit your reservation since no other written confirmation will be sent. (Or you can take a screenshot of your confirmation and print it later.)
