Group Tours

Group Tours are designed for student groups, organizational groups, and other groups larger than ten people (generally high school groups). Group tours consist of a walking tour of campus led by knowledgeable Colorado Mesa University student ambassadors. To ensure your group’s needs are met, please let us know if you have any special requests, like an admissions presentation, a tour of the Western Colorado Community College campus or a meal in the Colorado Mesa University dining hall.


Reservations are required for group visits and must be scheduled at least seven days in advance. We encourage earlier reservations to better ensure that your group is able to come on your desired date and we are able to meet your group’s needs. If you need to cancel your visit, we ask for two business days’ notice (excluding weather related or unavoidable issues). Have questions? Please contact our Coordinator of Events and Visitation at (970) 248-1130 or
