Group Tours and Non-Admission Tours

The Office of College Admissions of the University of Chicago makes group tours available for high schools, educational programs, community-based organizations, and extracurricular groups working with high school students in the 10th, 11th or 12th grade. Visiting groups with 20 students or more may request a dedicated information session and tour that can be customized to fit the interests of the group.

Group visits are offered Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The total visit time is 2 hours: 1 hour for an information session and 1 hour for a campus tour. If you intend to visit for only a campus tour, the tour will begin at 10:30 a.m. or 3:30 p.m. and will last only 1 hour.

Group tours are intended for prospective high school students interested in the University of Chicago’s undergraduate College. The University of Chicago welcomes foreign, government, and professional visiting groups, and recommends that these groups review our UChicago Tour Resources as these tours may better serve the interests of guests who are not prospective undergraduate students.
