    The tour will take approximately 90 minutes and includes stairs, and some uphill and downhill walking. Appropriate walking shoes for our hills and forest floors and dressing in layers are highly recommended in our variable coastal climate.

    Our campus tours are a completely outdoor experience (no classroom or student housing interiors).


    There are online waitlists available for full tours. Select the tour/s that you are interested in and you will see a message with instructions to join the waitlist. You will be notified automatically if a spot becomes available.

    Our friendly, knowledgeable student tour guides can’t wait to meet you! 

    We are not offering weekend tours at this time. Additional tour offerings will be added as they become available.

    Tour guests needing mobility accommodations as outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) should email visits@ucsc.edu or call 831-459-4118 at least five business days in advance of their scheduled tour.
