Group Visits

Who should attend Student groups and leaders

Group visits are for large student groups and are scheduled by counselors or group leaders. We host groups from middle schools, high schools, community colleges, and organizations.

What To Expect

Our group visits include:

  • a one-hour introduction to KU presentation or advice on how to prepare for college from an admissions representative
  • (for high school groups and based on ambassador availability) a one-hour walking tour of campus led by a student ambassador

That's just the beginning. While you're here, consider adding these activities to your visit:

High school groups

Departmental presentations are based on availability. Plan to spend about an hour on each additional activity.

Middle school groups

Self-guided activities could include:



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. 

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 (1:8 for middle schools). If you have a group larger than 120 students, please contact Cailan Silva by email at

When should we arrive?

We recommend you arrive 15-20 minutes before your group visit. Campus tours cannot be guaranteed for groups that arrive more than 15 minutes late.
