Group Tours

Group Tours are a 60-minute walking tour with a current student ambassador for groups of 10 or more people from the same school or organization.

We have limited availability for group visits during our academic year. If you would like to inquire about scheduling a group tour please email visits@temple.edu and include your group name, number of students, and contact information.

Group Tour requests are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Availability is limited and visits tend to fill up quickly. Please submit your email request at least two weeks before the day you would like to visit.

After your request is submitted, our office will contact your group within 10 business days. Once the request is approved, you will receive a confirmation email, typically within one week of the approval.

  • Due to the high volume of visitors on Temple’s campus, group tours are only offered during select months of the year based on the Office of Undergraduate Admissions’ discretion.

  • Group tours are only available Monday through Friday during regular business hours. Group tours are not offered during weekends, holidays and select weeks throughout the calendar year.
