Let us show you around! Our guided, on-campus tours and information sessions will give you a better understanding of our location, academic programs, and student life at Colorado State. Get a real feel for CSU and what it means to be a Ram by joining us in Fort Collins.

Our tours and information sessions allow you to build your schedule based on your interests. A variety of options are available so you can tailor your time to suit your needs.

  • Admissions information and general campus tour: Admissions sessions and tours are offered Monday through Saturday. The information session is 30 minutes and is followed by a 90-minute campus tour, guided by trained student ambassadors. Tour stops include the Oval, the Lory Student Center, a residence hall room, a classroom, and the campus rec center.
  • Academics and student life: Offerings for academics and student life are different based on the day, so we recommend that you look at several days to see the different opportunities available.
  • Housing: A mock dorm room is set up in the Welcome Center. Guests will see a dorm room in Parmelee Hall if they take the general campus tour. Virtual tours also are available by clicking on each hall and then scrolling to the 360 Tour tab.

Admissions information sessions and tours typically run twice a day from Mondays through Saturdays. Academic and student life tours change from day to day, so be sure to check multiple days on the calendar to see what’s available.

Info sessions and tours are not available during CSU holidays and closures.

Because tours are personalized, please check your registration emails for specific details about the locations you’ll be visiting. Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your first session begins to park and check in.

Parking for your visit is free; however, all visitors must provide their vehicle’s license plate number to obtain a digital parking permit. Permits are required, except if visiting after 4 p.m. or on weekends. These digital permits are valid in any “Reserved Parking for Admission Guest” spaces or in any “A – Faculty & Staff” spaces. Permits are not valid in “pay to park” spaces.

Use our online maps and parking locations to help plan your visit.

These sessions and tours are free to attend.
