Campus Tours for Individual Prospective Undergraduate Students

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 tour guide. Tours are conducted rain or shine, so please dress appropriately. Reservations are required.

Housing Tours for Individual Prospective Undergraduate Students

We invite all prospective students who are interested in living on campus to join us for a guided tour of our housing options. Our Residence Life staff will guide you around campus to see the following housing options: Centennial Place, Living Learning Complex and Rawls Hall. Please note: Registration for the Housing Tour does not include a tour of campus. If you’re interested in seeing the rest of campus, we encourage you to register for a campus tour for individual prospective undergraduate students above.

Campus Tours for Middle or High School Groups

We invite all middle and high school groups to tour the University of Memphis campus. If you plan to bring a group of 10 or more people to campus, we ask that you register for a group tour. All students must be in at least 6th grade to participate in the campus tour. You must bring 1 chaperone for every 15 students in your group. We are able to accommodate group tours of a maximum of 100 people, including students and chaperones.

Group tours for high school groups include a 60-minute walking tour with a student tour guide. Students must be in 9th-12th grade. Tours are conducted rain or shine, so please encourage your students to dress appropriately. Reservations are required. We cannot guarantee your preferred date and time, so please try to schedule your visit at least three weeks in advance.

Group tours for middle school groups include a 60-minute scavenger hunt campus tour. Students must be in 6th-8th grade. These tours are self-guided and led by the chaperones. We offer clues and maps for chaperones who are unfamiliar with the UofM campus. Reservations are required; however, we are very flexible with times, and can offer these tours at any time Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. Please let us know what time works best for your group.

Self-Guided Campus Tours

If you’re not able to come to the University of Memphis for a regular campus visit, we encourage you to come for a self-guided campus tour instead. Remember to wear your walking shoes!
