How can I take a tour of UCSB?

Guided campus tours are available in a limited capacity. Join us for a 75-minute walking tour of the beautiful UCSB campus! Registration is required. Please note we are updating our visit calendar in 2-3 week increments.

If you are unable to take a guided tour, you are still welcome to explore campus on your own! View our self-guided visit options below and register for your date of interest to receive information on how to make the most of your visit.

The Visitor Center offers online visits so that you can learn more about campus, academics, and student life and ask your questions. Join our student tour guides for a guided virtual tour to explore campus.
