Group Tours

Penn’s beautiful campus is a popular destination for visitors of all ages.  Our admissions programming is for prospective high school students.

Official group visits (15 or more) are limited to high school students interested in learning more about Penn. These groups should register by submitting a group tour request. Due to high visitor volume, we are unable to offer private information sessions.

  • Reservations guarantee your space in the public campus tour and admissions information session.
  • We can accommodate up to 50 students per group.
  • Group visits are not offered on weekends, during University holidays or during student breaks.
  • Group tours are offered for prospective undergraduate students only.

Your group visit is neither guaranteed nor confirmed until you have received written notice from the Office of Admissions.

Young scholars in middle or elementary school who would like to visit are welcome to visit campus and explore using our self-guided walking tour. Penn’s campus is open to the public, allowing you to tailor your visit to your interests and educational needs.

Checklist for your visit:

  • Send your list of student names to the Office of Admissions at least two days prior to your visit.
  • Groups must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled visit. Failure to do so may result in forfeiture of accommodations.
  • Buses should drop off students at the corner of 34th and Walnut Streets. The bus can then make a left onto 34th Street and proceed to the light, making a right onto Spruce Street. Once on Spruce Street, there are parking inlets in front of Irvine Auditorium where the bus driver can park temporarily. The bus driver will need to stay with the bus and be visible at all times. We are not responsible for fees incurred should the bus be ticketed.
