Guided Campus Tours for Prospective Undergraduates

We invite all undergraduate prospective students who are interested in a general overview of the University of Memphis and the admissions process to schedule an official campus tour. We offer campus tours for both the Memphis and Lambuth campuses.

Student-led tours are held Monday through Friday throughout the year (with the exception of University closings). The tour consists of an information session led by an Admissions representative and a walking tour led by a student guide. Tours are conducted rain or shine, so please dress appropriately. Reservations are required.

Group Tours for Prospective Undergraduates

If you plan to bring a group of 10 or more middle or high school students to campus, we ask that you register for a group tour. All students must be at least in 7th grade to attend this campus tour. We ask that you provide at least one chaperone for every 20 students in your group.

Group tours are held Monday through Friday at 9:30 am and 1:30 pm. The tour consists of a 60-minute walking tour led by a student guide. Tours are conducted rain or shine so please dress appropriately. Reservations are required. We cannot guarantee your preferred date, so please try to schedule your visit at least two weeks in advance.
