Tours & Information Sessions
For Prospective Students and Families:
For prospective students interested in visiting Princeton, we recommend signing up for an Admission Information Session and one of our student-led tours. Registration for each of these programs is separate. While we do not track visits or measure interest, we recommend signing up for a tour so we can best prepare for your arrival on campus.
For School or Community Groups:
If you have a group of 10 or more high school students that would like to visit campus, please submit a request via the link below. We make every effort to host high school groups and community based organizations, but we cannot guarantee availability on your requested day/time. Please submit your group visit request at least three weeks in advance of your visit. Note that visiting groups are limited to 50 high school students. Our information sessions are offered in English.
For Tourists to the Princeton Area:
If you are a visitor and you would like to tour the campus, you are welcome to contact independent tour companies for guided tours of the town of Princeton and the Princeton University Campus. There are also mobile app-based historical tours called (In)Visible Princeton which allow you to learn about the lesser-known chapters of the University’s history at your own pace. Our Admissions Information Session and student-led tour are structured to provide information about the college search and application process and are not as relevant to tourists or visitors wishing to learn more about the history of the area and the University.
For Prospective Engineering Students:
Tours of the School of Engineering and Applied Science are available for prospective students on weekdays when classes are in session and on a limited basis in the summer months. For more information, please visit the engineering school's website for tour schedules.
For Virtual Visitors:
If you are unable to make it to our campus, you can experience our 23-stop virtual tour of the main campus available in four languages — English, Korean, Mandarin and Spanish — accessible via your desktop or smartphone. (It's available as virtual reality too!) The virtual tour is led by students and includes 360-degree panorama photos and videos.
