Frequently Asked Questions

How can I become a UCSB tour guide?

Generally, we recruit and hire a new class of tour guides every year during fall quarter. For the most up to date information on our next application cycle, check out our Prospective Tour Guides page. Unfortunately, given the outbreak of COVID-19 and closure of the Visitor Center indefinitely, we will not be recruiting this fall for new 2020-2021 tour guides.

How can I take a tour of UCSB?

While we wish we could show you around our beautiful campus in-person, the Visitor Center is currently closed in accordance with state and county health guidelines. We are unable to offer any in-person visits at this time. We hope you'll join one of our virtual events to learn more about campus and talk with UCSB tour guides!
