Campus Visit Programs and Tours

    We are excited to once again offer in-person visits, and invite you to join us on our beautiful campus to Discover Stanford! Campus visit options are available Monday through Friday; on weekends and university holidays, visitors are welcome to take a self-guided tour.

    Campus tours and other sessions fill up quickly, so we recommend you wait to book your travel until after you receive a confirmation email with your upcoming reservations to visit Stanford University.

    Please note: The "Discover Stanford Campus Visit" events listed are umbrella events that encompass all of the various programs we offer (listed below). While completing the registration, you will have the ability to plan out your day and select the specific programs you would like to attend.

    We offer several different programs to help you learn more about the undergraduate student experience and applying to Stanford. Please note that not all options may be available on the day of your visit:

    Prospective Undergraduate Student Tour
    This tour typically lasts about 90 minutes and will cover nearly all of the central areas of campus over the course of its flat and accessible 2-mile path. Your student guide will focus particularly on sharing with you the amazing opportunities and experiences that come with being an undergraduate student at Stanford. If a Prospective Undergraduate Student Tour is not available in the registration form, it means that registration is full or that we are not offering tours. You are welcome to add a Self-Guided Tour to your visit to help you learn more about campus instead!

    Admission Information Session
    The Discover Stanford information session is designed to help high school students and prospective transfers explore the programs, places, and people that define Stanford’s commitment to undergraduate education within the setting of a world-class university. This 45-minute information session is conducted by a representative from the Office of Undergraduate Admission. The representative will discuss characteristics that make Stanford distinctive, as well as Stanford’s admission process and commitment to financial aid.

    Student Forum
    The Student Forum provides a casual, comfortable opportunity for prospective students (and only students) to chat with 3-5 current undergraduate students to learn more about what it's really like to be a student on the Stanford campus. The student hosts will not talk about admission or financial aid, but instead about student life - academics, athletics, activities, residences, dining, weekends, the social scene, etc.

    **We are currently only able to offer a limited number of tours, information sessions, and student forums through Friday, March 24. Dates for Spring Break (March 27-31) will be posted by December 5. Dates for Spring Quarter (April - June) will be made available for registration in mid-February.**

     
     

    Please note our current visit policies:

    • Registration is required for all guided tours and information sessions. No exceptions will be made.
    • There is no waitlist or walk-in process for any programs that are full. No exceptions.
    • Given our limited availability, we ask that all registrants limit their parties to no more than 3 additional guests, for a total of 4 individuals per registration.
    • Stanford strongly recommends wearing face coverings while indoors, and outdoors in crowded settings when maintaining 6 feet of distance from others is not possible.
    Please note that Stanford does not track demonstrated interest as part of the admission process. You may cancel or update your registration at any time. Participation in campus visit opportunities is optional and has no bearing on our admission process should you decide to apply to Stanford.
