Thank you for your interest in visiting our campus. At this time, the UC Santa Cruz Campus Tours Office is not hosting in-person group tours. Please continue to check our website for the most up-to-date information about in-person, student-led, on-campus tours HERE. We hope to offer group tours in Fall 2022.

Even though the Campus Visits Office is unable to provide your group with a guided campus tour, we want you to have a positive and informative experience. You are welcome to use our self-guided tour materials for your visit.

Dining halls are currently closed to the public and they are not serving group tour meals until further notice. You can visit their page closer to the date of your visit here.

If your group is traveling by bus, we suggest that your bus drop you off and pick you up at Cowell Circle, and hold over in the Barn Theater parking lot. If you are coming by bus, please let us know the date. Please see Bus Parking and Passenger Loading map here. As a courtesy, we can verify with campus transportation that the lot/s will be accessible for you.

If you’d like, we could also book a virtual tour of UCSC or a virtual “Ask Me Anything” student panel for you and your students. The typical format of the virtual tour is a 1 hour zoom presentation with our student tour guides and breaks for questions throughout. For an online student panel we could work with you to identify your students’ interests so we can provide the best guides to make your event meaningful. Please email if you would be interested in either of these options and we will work with you to schedule a time for your group.

Please note: All visitors must adhere to current campus COVID-19 guidelines that you can view here
