Group Visit Resources

As educators, mentors and community leaders, you play a critical role in helping students gain access to higher education. The USF Office of Admission aims to make that job a little easier.

We've outlined group tour and information session opportunities as well as academic and financial aid information. We want to provide you and your students with enough information to arrive on campus eager to ask about our options and to discover why USF is the right fit.

Group Tours

Tours are available throughout the academic year, Monday through Friday at 10:00am or 2:00pm or on select Saturdays at 10:00am. Tours are not available on university holidays. We recommend that you schedule your visit at least two months in advance. Upon scheduling a tour, you will receive a confirmation email that provides directions and information about preparing for your visit.

Information Sessions

Admission counselors are available to provide a 20-40 minute information session for prospective freshmen and transfer students. These optional sessions include an introduction to academic programs, admission requirements, financial aid opportunities and USF campus life. Please allow up to an hour after your tour if your high school or college group would like to attend. Unfortunately, given the high volume of group requests, we are not able to provide information sessions for elementary and middle school students.


Please submit a request for a USF brochure. Our brochures provide an introduction to the University and include information about majors, student activities and applying for financial aid. You can also request a USF pennant for your classroom or advising center.

Directions to Campus

If you are driving a car or van to campus, please use the visitor's entrance located at 2800 Turk Blvd. between Parker Ave. and Temescal St. Stop at the visitor’s kiosk at the top of the hill for on-campus parking instructions. If you are traveling in a charter bus, please read our bus parking instructions.

If you are taking public transportation, the #5 Fulton will take you to the corner of Fulton and Parker. Cross the street going toward St. Ignatius Church, pass the front of the church, and make a left onto the grassy area known as Welch Field. Please wait there and call the Office of Admission (415-422-6563) so that our University Ambassadors can meet you for the start of the tour.
