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.)


Winter Break: Mid-December to End of January

Sorry, guided tours are not available due to finals and Winter Break. The self guided campus tour is available for you to tour the campus on your own at any time.  Reservations are not required and check-in is not needed to tour the campus with this option. Visit for the available options.

*Note: December 24-January 1: Departments are closed.


Spring 2015 (February - May)

Details will be available in mid-February after our tour guides add and finalize their classes for the spring semester. Our schedule is based upon the work availability of our student tour guides.  Please check back for updates!
