Frequently Asked Questions for Group Tours
Our Events Team will contact you within the next week to discuss scheduling a visit.
Group tours are typically for students and their school/organization chaperones. We also coordinate group tours for school counselors.
Please contact the Events staff if parents are interested in attending.
We are offering virtual and in-person group visits. If you are participating in a virtual group visit, there are no restrictions on the maximum number of students that can participate. If you have requested an in-person group visit, the capacity is a maximum of 50 students and up to 4 chaperones. We still ask that you provide at least one adult chaperone for every fifteen students for both in-person and virtual visits. Please note that the Office of University Admissions reserves the right to alter or cancel an in-person visit based on the changing nature of the Coronavirus and the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and requirements of New York state.
Our policy is that groups must be accompanied by at least one adult chaperone per fifteen students if possible. All chaperones must remain with the group at all times, including the entire campus tour.
Both in-person and virtual group visits include a personalized welcome, an information session and a campus tour. You can also opt to have lunch on campus if your visit is in-person.

For in-person visits, please keep note of our safety precautions. Masks are optional based on your comfort level but are subject to change. Faculty may require students to wear masks in their classes, studios or laboratories. For more detailed mask information, please visit our website. We ask that you and your students self-screen for symptoms and/or exposure prior to arrival, and those with risk factors should refrain from coming to campus. The University’s COVID-19 plans and policies remain rooted in the most current scientific data, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, and all state and local requirements. Additionally, our Health and Wellness team continues to monitor new variants, community transmission levels, vaccine recommendations, and all official guidance for ongoing review and refinement of our policies. Should any changes occur, we will keep you updated via email and/or phone.
Moving forward, we will be offering virtual and in-person group visits.
Yes, we are now offering the option to purchase lunch on campus for group visits depending on the size of the group. If the group is too large to have lunch in one of our cafeterias or dining halls, lunch can be ordered through our catering office. You can also bring your own lunch to eat on campus.
