Start your tour by selecting your guide. Each offers a tour from their own perspective: Lorraine, a freshman; Serinah, a transfer student; Max, a student athlete; or Willie, a graduating student. They share an insider’s view on navigating campus, locating resources, and what it takes to succeed at Cal State L.A.

The general tour is good for intrepid explorers interested in touring campus on their own. It covers all 29 stops, providing helpful facts and tips.

Once in the tour, you can navigate among locations by clicking on the balloon-like markers on the map, or on the building names in the menu to the left of your screen. When a location is selected, a new box will pop up with information about it. Exterior and interior photographs from that location then rotate through the viewing screen. Look for buttons in these boxes to hide text, hide your guide and even read your guide’s personal profile.

Don’t overlook the two 360-degree panorama vistas (denoted as the black markers on the map). They are at two of the busiest locations on campus: the Main Walkway and the University-Student Union Plaza.

Enjoy your virtual visit of Cal State L.A.—and if you are considering enrollment at Cal State L.A., then make plans soon for an in-person tour.
