Special Group Tours

Thank you for your interest in bringing your students to the University of Miami! You may complete our Special Tour Request form here.

General guidelines

  • Group size should be anywhere from 15-60 people, which includes students and chaperones.
  • Tours are offered Monday – Friday at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
    • Not available when the University is closed or classes are not in session. Please refer to our Academic Calendar.
    • Not available during March or April due to a higher influx of visitors.
  • We ask that you send in requests at least 10 days prior to the date that you would like to schedule your tour.
  • Tours are geared toward students who are preparing to apply for and attend college. If you would like to bring students younger than 9th grade, please feel free to download our Self-Guided Walking Tour, which you may use to navigate the campus at your leisure.

Preparing for your tour

  • Tours are typically 1 hour 15 minutes long and will include a substantial amount of walking, so please plan accordingly.
    • “Hurricane Season” lasts from June – October and sporadic rainstorms are common.
    • At times, we will need to cancel walking tours due to inclement weather at the discretion of the admission staff. If this happens, we will replace the tour with a student panel.
    • As we are located in a sub-tropical climate, the sun tends to be very strong, even on cloudy days. We recommend all visitors wear sunscreen.

Arriving for your tour

  • We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour. Please note that if you arrive more than 15 minutes after your scheduled tour time, your tour may be canceled.
  • Please check in at the front desk of the Office of Undergraduate Admission, which is located in the Whitten University Center.
  • If on the day of your tour, you find that you are running late or are in need of directions, please call us at 305-284-5672.
