Campus Tours

Please review the visit guidelines for the health and safety of CMU visitors and the campus community before scheduling your tour. We kindly ask that prospective students bring no more than two guests with them to campus.

Sign up for a campus tour


  • Tour registration is limited to two guests per prospective student.
  • Advanced registration is required. The sign-up closes 72 hours in advance of the tour to ensure that the campus visitation team is ready for your visit.
  • After you register, you will receive a confirmation email with directions to the Admissions Welcome Center to park and check in.

Tour Availability

  • Weekday tours are generally offered on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays at 1pm.
  • Saturday tours are generally offered on a weekly basis at 9am.
  • Tour groups will be limited to two families per tour guide. There may be separate tour groups depending on tour participant registration.

Visit Expectations

  • Please check in at the Admissions Welcome Center.
  • A staff member will present an information session before or after a student ambassador leads you across campus. This is dependent on the tour group to which your family is assigned. After you check in, you may be asked to join your tour guide at the welcome tent outside of the Admissions Office.
  • The campus tour does not include a one-on-one meeting with an admissions counselor. If you would like to schedule an appointment after you sign up for your tour, please use the counselor search to contact your counselor directly.

Health and Safety

  • Mask are required in all buildings on campus. You will be provided a mask upon arrival if you do not bring one.
  • Social distancing practices will be outlined at the beginning of your tour. Expect to maintain a distance of at least fix feet from other people who are not members of your family. Your tour guide will distance by at least twelve feet when they need to remove their mask to speak to the tour group.
  • Please do not touch surfaces inside the buildings on your tour. Your tour guide will open doors for you as you enter and exit buildings.
