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 Summer Session. If you would like to inquire about scheduling a group tour for the summer please email visits@temple.edu and include your group name, number of students, and contact information. At this time we are not scheduling group visits for the Fall semester. We will begin scheduling those later this summer, in August.

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 three 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.
