Daily housing tours are offered Monday through Friday, excluding holidays and special events, at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:00 p.m.
The Department of Residential Life hosts daily tours at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. from the lobby of Grace King Hall every Monday through Friday (excluding university holidays and the dates listed below). No registration is required.
Please arrive at Grace King Hall at least five minutes before the tour start time. Student tour guides are available to help you figure out which buildings to tour and then they will lead the walking tour to various residence halls and show student rooms and common spaces.
The tour divides into two groups – one group tours the east side of campus, and the second group tours the west side of campus. Please review the Res Life Tour Map to see which tour would be best for you. Not sure? No problem! Your tour guide can help you decide which tour will be most beneficial for you once you arrive at Grace King Hall.
If you’d like to see housing options on both the east and west side of campus, please plan on going on two of the tours at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., as there is not enough time to see all the options in one tour. We have a lot to offer our residents!
