Organized tour groups
Marquette University welcomes chaperoned groups to visit campus. The information presented below is a guide for chaperones and tour organizers.
We offer tour group appointments on select Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9am throughout the year. Visits consist of an admissions presentation at 9am and a campus tour at 10am. Visits last approximately two hours.
Please contact us at least three (3) weeks prior to your visit. We will do our best to accommodate your selected Tuesday or Thursday. However, due to campus events and staffing limitations, we may need to consider alternate dates. Most visits last between two and three hours.
Group visit appointments are not available on weekends.
Group visit appointments are not available in April or July.
Join a Marquette admissions counselor for a formal presentation about Marquette University; our heritage, programs of study, admission and financial aid procedures. Time will be available for general questions.
A current Marquette University student will lead the group on a tour of campus. Tour highlights include the Raynor Library, Joan of Arc Chapel, a classroom, the Alumni Memorial Union, Rec Center, and a residence hall. Building access is subject to change due to special events, holidays or operating hours.
- Meals (groups may purchase lunch in the union)
- Special facility tours (eg. Al McGuire Center, gross anatomy lab)
- Spirit shop discounts
- Overnight accommodations
- Transportation to/from campus
Should it become necessary to cancel your visit to campus, kindly provide at least three days notice by calling the Admissions Office at 414-288-7302 or email email@example.com. Scheduled groups that do not provide notice may be limited in future campus visits.
Our campus visit program is designed for high school students; especially for juniors, seniors and college transfer students. While we appreciate that there are a great number of programs designed to introduce younger students to college, we are unable to accommodate groups or special programs that do not represent high school students, college students, or students in this age group. We have found that the best way to prepare elementary and middle school students for attending college is by working to provide a solid academic foundation upon which to draw in the future.
We require groups to provide one adult chaperone for every 15 students coming to our campus. Chaperones are responsible for maintaining the good behavior of the students they are bringing to campus. Please ensure that your group shows respect for the university, students, faculty and staff. Disruptive groups will be asked to leave campus early.
Campus tours involve walking throughout our 100 acre campus and are conducted regardless of the weather. Please encourage your group to dress accordingly; wear comfortable clothing and shoes. As one of the nation’s leading colleges, we are passionate about free exercise of thought and communication. However, offensive and disrespectful clothing choices will result in a participant being asked to remove any offending items in our sole discretion.
Please know that our schedule is quite full. Late arrivals will result in a modification of your tour and/or presentation. If you anticipate being late, please call the admissions office as soon as possible to determine how we may be able to best accommodate your group.
