Southwestern University can host a group of up to 50 students.

All visiting students should be in high school and have a serious desire to tour the campus. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate groups of elementary and middle school students. These groups should consider our self-guided tour.

Group tours are not available during midterms, finals, holidays, and Spring Break. Additionally, we are unable to accommodate any groups on weekends.

Summer availability is also limited (May-August).

One adult chaperone is required for every ten students.

Meals must be arranged at least one week in advance at the expense of the visiting group. We can provide the group with contact information for our food service provider.

Availability of guided campus tours is dependent on the size of the visiting group.

Please note: For groups who fall outside of the guidelines above, please consider our self-guided tour.
