Group tours typically range in size from nine to seventy-five guests, and groups are typically comprised of members from a single organization or school. We are not currently able to provide group tours to elementary or middle schools, but we encourage these groups to take our self-guided tour of campus.
Group tours are available Monday through Friday, excluding holidays and campus closures. A group tour typically lasts one hour. Please review our calendar for availability and submit a group-tour request as far in advance as possible. After you submit a request, our office will be in touch within one-to-three business days. Submitting a request does not guarantee a scheduled visit. Group tours are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Click the Request Group Tour button below to get started.
Please arrive on time. If your group is late, your itinerary may need to be modified or cancelled. Tallahassee is in the Eastern Time zone.
Our University Ambassadors are enrolled FSU students who are excited to show visitors our beautiful campus.
