Thank you for your interest
We look forward to hosting your group! UC Santa Cruz will begin offering group tours to high schools, community colleges, and other groups that work with prospective students later this fall. Group sizes can range from six to a maximum of 60 guests (including chaperones). We require one adult chaperone for every 15 students, and the chaperone is required to stay with the group for the entire duration of the tour.
What to Expect
Our group tour is generally 90 minutes and covers approximately 1.5 miles over hilly terrain and many stairs. If any guests in your group have temporary or long-term mobility issues or require other accommodations, please let us know when making your reservation.
Reservations for a group tour must be requested at least one month in advance and are subject to availability of student guides. Submitting a request does not guarantee your group tour on the requested date. Our team will contact you directly so please make sure your contact information is for someone we can reach by phone and email.

- If your group is traveling by bus, your bus must drop you off and pick you up at Cowell Circle, and hold over in the Barn Theater parking lot. If you plan to bring a bus to the campus for your visit you must be sure to convey this information to your bus driver.
