If you are a prospective or admitted graduate student and would like to join a tour of campus, current graduate students lead tours Monday through Friday. Tours leave promptly from our office, and last approximately one hour. Walk-ins are welcome, but we ask that you please register in advance. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation, including links to directions and parking information. Because parking near campus can be extremely difficult, we encourage you to allow at least 30 minutes to find parking, or to use public transit if possible. If you have additional questions or need special accommodation, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 773.702.3760.
Interested in bringing a group? Please fill out our group tour request form at least three weeks prior to your planned visit. We will then be in touch to discuss the arrangements for your visit. Please note that requests submitted without ample time for planning may not be possible. We also cannot coordinate or finance any costs related to your trip.
