What is the best time to visit?
Peak tour season is in the months of March and April. If you choose to visit during peak season, please be aware that tour groups may be quite large due to staffing limitations. To maximize your tour experience, we recommend visiting in Summer or early Fall.
Where should we meet to join the tour?
Tour groups will meet in the Admissions Theatre on the Boca Raton campus. Our office is located in the Student Support Services Building (SU 80). Click here to view the new campus map
Where should we park?
Please stop at the Information Booth (located on West University Dr. at the Glades Road entrance) to pick up a temporary hangtag for parking during your visit. Then, proceed to lot 16 which is located on the west side of the Student Support Services Building (SU 80). The Office of Admissions and Admissions Theatre is located on the first floor. Temporary tags are valid for lot 16 only. Please do not park in the visitors lot or metered or reserved parking spaces, as you may get cited.
If you would like to purchase a temporary parking pass for Lot 16 in advance, please visit http://www.fau.edu/parking/temporary_permit.php. Once purchased, permits are not able to be returned or exchanged
What does the tour include?
We begin with an information session led by an experienced admissions counselor, who is qualified to answer general questions about academic offerings and admissions procedures. Next, groups will depart on a walking tour led by a student tour guide. The walking tour does include a sample room in a residence hall at this time.
How long will our visit last?
Approximately 2 hours (includes information session).
For your comfort, it is recommended that you wear cool, comfortable clothes and shoes during the tour. Please bring an umbrella, and remember that tours are subject to cancellation based on poor weather conditions. Please contact our office for verification of closure.
Campus tours and Information Sessions are not available during official University holidays, home football game days, Saturdays during the Summer, and dates of Admissions Events (see reservation form for more information).
