Prospective Student Tour

Prospective Student Campus Tours are for individuals or families interested in visiting the campus. You are given a 60 minute walking tour around campus with a current student. You must sign up online for your tour before arriving at SJSU. During peak times, tour times may be altered, and additional tours may be offered.  Please register for your tour at least two business days before your preferred tour time.

School/Group Tours

Group tours are for programs or large groups (groups of 15 or more).  Group tours continue to be offered on a limited basis due to high demand and limited resources, and reach capacity during popular break and vacation times.  Group tours should be scheduled at least 30 days before your requested tour date.
