What is a Group Tour?
We define a Group Tour as 10 or more prospective students visiting campus to learn more about the college experience and Florida State University's campus culture. Group Tour Experiences can vary depending on the size of the group and the date of the visit. To begin planning your group's visit to Florida State University, please read the Group Tour Request information below.
Request a Guided Group Tour
Please complete our Group Tour request form at least two weeks prior to your requested visit day and time. Once you have completed the form, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your request.
Based on the information provided on the Group Tour Request Form, we will determine our ability to accommodate your group at the date(s) and time(s) requested. We cannot guarantee your request will be approved but will include any relevant inquiries or additional options in our reply. Group Tours are approved on a first-come, first-served basis and may be restricted during peak visitation seasons. Please allow for 3-5 business days for processing of your request.
Resources for Groups Visiting Campus
All groups are welcome to visit campus. Below, we've provided a few resources you may find helping in planning your trip to Tallahassee.
Virtual Tour & Self-Guided Tour Options
Prior to your visit, we recommend exploring our online Virtual Tour. This desktop version of our self-guided tour makes it easy to explore the areas of campus you may want to see during your visit.
We also have a self-guided tour app which you can download for easy use on campus. Choose one of our premade tours or create a personalized tour based on your group's interests.
Our online campus map has a variety of features to help your group get around campus during your visit. Find Seminole Dining locations, labels for on-campus Housing, accessibility information, and more using the map's main menu.
Our guided Group Tours do not include an Admission Information Session. The Office of Admissions offers both First-Year and Transfer Admission information sessions virtually. Registration for these events is available through our Virtual Tour registration calendar.
Admissions brochures are available at the Visitor Center. Groups can inquire about publication availability at the Visitor Center front desk upon check in. We also have digital publications available for easy access and sharing.
Bus Parking on Campus
Buses are welcome on campus however roads are narrow and access to the center of campus will not be possible by bus. The best place for unloading, loading, and parking a bus on campus is the University Center surrounding Doak Campbell Stadium. From here, groups can walk to their destination on campus. FSU is very pedestrian friendly allowing groups to access most areas of campus on foot within a 15 to 25-minute walk.
For detailed information regarding bus parking on campus, please visit our Group Tour Directions & Parking Information page.
