Group Tours at the Hayward Campus Welcome Center

Are you a leader of a school or outreach group interested in visiting campus? Then please submit an online group tour request form. Note: October is fully booked for Group Tours. Group tours are given Monday through Friday at 10:00am for groups of no more than 60 students. Please note that filling out this request form does not guarantee your tour date. You will be contacted within 1-2 weeks by email to confirm all tour details. Tours can book up early so at least a month in advance is recommended. If your group is larger than 60 students, please fill out the application, include flexible dates, and we will do our best to ensure we can assist your group. We offer Admissions Presentations for High School and College Transfer groups only upon request as our schedule allows. We look forward to seeing you on campus!

Saturday Tours

Saturday tour programs at the Hayward Campus are available on select Saturdays. Spend a Saturday morning from 9:00 - 11:30am enjoying a specially designed program. Join in for a tour of our beautiful campus, including on-campus housing, and an opportunity to talk with current East Bay students about what it means to be a Pioneer! Saturday tours meet at 9:00am at Pioneer Heights Lassen Hall. The Welcome Center is excited to be moving locations in the Fall and therefore is currently not offering regular Saturday Tours. We think you'll enjoy our Preview Day on Saturday October 17th which offers tours of campus, a peek at housing, as well as offering a University Showcase. It's a great day to visit campus!
