That's just the beginning. While you're here, consider adding these activities to your visit:
middle SCHOOL GROUPS
coming by School Bus/Charter Bus:
If dropping off your group at or near the KU Memorial Union for a campus tour or another activity, your driver must stage the bus at Memorial Stadium (“STAD” & yellow lot #94 on the campus map) to avoid ticketing at the Union.
Buses cannot park in the KU Visitor Center lot. Your driver must stage the bus at the Lied Center (“LIED” & yellow lot #300 on the campus map) to avoid ticketing at the Visitor Center.
coming by Car/Van:
If you travel to campus in a car or van you may park at the KU Visitor Center (“KUVC” & red lot #400 on the campus map) at 1502 Iowa Street. We will issue you a parking permit at the front desk to display on your dashboard.
For group activities scheduled at the KU Union you'll want to park at the Mississippi Street Parking Garage (North of the KU Union & “MSPK” on the campus map). We will give you a barcode to scan as you exit the garage that will validate your parking fee.
Please refer to your confirmation schedule for any additional parking instructions.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Group visits are free! Lunch is not provided, but please inquire about a group discount coupon for our dining hall if your group is interested in having lunch while on campus. Activities may have additional costs.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I BRING?
Group visits are for large groups of students. If you have fewer than 10 students, please consider one of our other visit options.
You may bring up to 120 students. One chaperone is required for every 10 students. If you have a group larger than 120 students, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHEN SHOULD WE ARRIVE?
We recommend you arrive 15-20 minutes before your group visit. We have the right to cancel a scheduled activity for groups that arrive more than 15 minutes late. You will be asked to move on to your next activity.
HOW DO I CANCEL MY GROUP VISIT?
If you need to cancel or reschedule your group visit, contact us at least three business days in advance by email at email@example.com or 785-864-3911
