Campus Tours

Welcome to Cal State LA Campus Tours!

Taking a tour of the campus is a great way to familiarize you with our university – both the physical spaces and the campus resources – and to learn more about what we have to offer. Our student Tour Leaders are highly-motivated and well-trained, and look forward to the opportunity to engage you as guests of the university and to share with you part of what makes Cal State LA such a special place.


Campus Tours Essentials

During the academic year (fall to spring), walking campus tours are offered at 10 am and 2 pm, Monday through Friday, and last for approximately one (1) hour. We do not offer tours on the weekends. Prospective students, friends, and family members are welcome to schedule a tour during one of our available time slots. We are happy to also provide tours for groups (10-50 participants), and will do our best to accommodate your request. We invite our middle school groups to schedule their tours for Friday mornings. We strongly encourage groups to secure a tour reservation first before booking your bus transportation, so that you can better take advantage of our available dates. Parking is provided at no additional cost for guests arriving in cars who schedule their tour at least one (1) week in advance. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to provide parking for groups arriving by bus. Buses will need to secure parking or layover off campus.


Summer Campus Tours - Beginning Monday, June 13, 2016, we will transition to our Summer Tour Schedule. Tours will be offered Monday through Friday at 10:30 am. Due to limited staffing, we do ask that you limit the size of your group to a maximum of 50 students.



We welcome your feedback as an opportunity to further improve and develop our program! See below for some examples of feedback from previous tours:
