How to book a tour

In order for us to plan the best tour possible, we recommend booking at least one week in advance by filling out our tour request form. Once you've filled out the online form our tour coordinator will contact you to confirm your tour.

Tours are available to students in senior high school or to individuals attending in the next two years. Tours are offered in the mornings or afternoons on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and are not available on weekends or statutory/University holidays. Friday tours often book up fast, so be sure to request your tour as early as possible.

Through a campus tour students can: explore campus buildings and facilities, visit the Academic Advising Centre, meet with a faculty member, and get information on our on-campus residences.
