*Elementary and Middle Schools: Please visit the K-8 Campus Visit Resources page for more information.

General Campus Tours

Our Group Campus Visits include:

  • Campus Tour (1 hour): Current PSU students lead these walking tours while sharing their personal experiences on campus.
  • Admissions Information Session (30 minutes): Topics covered by a representative of the Office of Admissions include academics, honors program, housing, and admissions process.

Guided group tours are only offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30 am and 1:30 pm. Due to amount of requests we receive, only one school can be accommodated per date. Dates are reserved on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please submit your group visit request at least three weeks in advance of your preferred date and time.

To view our group visits availability and to submit a request, please use our Group Visits Availability Calendar. If there is not a link on the date you would like to attend or if the date has been reserved, please email for a Self-Guided Tour.

Self-Guided Tours

Groups interested in exploring PSU on their own or are unable to secure a date but still intend on visiting campus are encouraged to do a self-guided tour. Since these tours are done on your own, groups can come on any date at any time. Please note: certain buildings are limited access (especially on the weekends) and cannot be viewed as part of a self-guided visit.

If you would like to request more information and receive guidance on how to schedule your self-guided visit, please email

Sustainability Tours (Available Starting September 2016!)

Please note: Sustainability Tours are NOT a substitute for our General Campus Tours. If you want to learn about academics and services on campus, please see the General Campus Tour section.

At Portland State, we strive to have everything we build teach us, and everything we learn help us create a better world. Our 50-acre urban campus is a vibrant, living laboratory for practicing sustainability, extending outside the classroom into offices, eateries, plazas, and gardens.  Perfect for groups looking to explore the many innovative and sustainable features of our campus.

Our Sustainability Campus Tour is 60-90 minutes in length and groups can choose to focus their tour on gardens, infrastructure, or a mix of both. For a group of 20, please submit your group visit request at least two weeks in advance of your preferred date and time. If your group exceeds 20 people, we require a minimum advance notice of one month. Tour dates and times are based on the availability of our Sustainability Ambassadors. 

To submit a request, please fill out our Sustainability Request FormPlease note that this form is only used as an inquiry and is not a guarantee or confirmation of your visit.
