    All campus tours are currently cancelled until further notice. New tour dates and times will be posted as soon as possible. Until then, please explore our virtual tour to learn more about our breathtaking campus, innovative academic programs, and student resources.

    Large Group Tours (more than 10 people):

    Guided tours for groups can be scheduled for almost any weekday throughout the year. Group tours are scheduled on a first-come first-serve basis, starting at  9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. (not offered during Summer), or 3 p.m. (not offered during Summer) Generally, group tours begin at the flagpoles outside Aldrich Hall.

    To be considered for a group visit, you must fit the following criteria:
    • Community College, High school, Middle school, Elementary school, or special interest group.
    • Group visits must be arranged for any group larger than 10 students. Groups should be no larger than 150 people (including chaperones).
    • There should be one chaperone per 25 visiting students.
    Registration Information
    • Reservations are required and must be completed online. Dates for January - March are now available. Dates for April - June will be published by the end of January.
    • All available tour dates and times are posted. If a date or time is missing, that means it is not available.
    • Reservations must be made at least 4 weeks in advance.
    • Once you have completed the online inquiry form, please upload the UCI Campus Tour Contract (pdf) to complete the registration process. This contract contains all our expectations for group visits. We reserve the right to deny future visit requests from groups that do not abide by our policies.
    • All reservations requests should be submitted by the school or community group. If you choose to use a tour company to schedule your visit, they must provide the name and phone number of a chaperone who will be attending with the group.
    Important Reminders
    • Parking on campus is limited. If you plan to bring a charter bus to campus, you will need to reserve a bus parking spot by contacting Parking and Transportation Services. There is a fee of approximately $20 associated with this reservation.
    • The tour is approximately one-hour long, so please arrive dressed comfortably.
    • In order to help UCI achieve its zero waste goal, please encourage your students to bring their own reusable water bottles; water refills are available for free at any on-campus restaurant and hydration station
    • Tours are not offered during major holidays and parts of April, June, and September.
    • Tours are given rain or shine.
    • If we are unable to accommodate your group for any reason, we hope that you still consider visiting UCI. Our virtual visits website contains a GPS enabled tour that will help you lead your group on a campus tour.
    If you or anyone in your group need(s) accommodations based on a disability (e.g. wheelchair, sign language interpreter if arranged 2+ weeks in advance, etc.), please contact
