Are you a prospective student or alumni who is interested in architectural engineering, architecture, city and regional planning, construction management, or landscape architecture? The CAED Student Ambassadors are pleased to assist with your visit!
We typically offer an overview tour of all five departments each Monday and Friday at 10:00 am during the academic year (see exceptions below). If you're not able to schedule a tour during the scheduled times, you may also explore our facilities through a Self-Guided Tour or a special request tour.
College tours begin in the lobby of the College of Architecture & Environmental Design, Building 05, Room 212, and are led by the CAED Ambassadors.
You may also use the Self-Guided Tour to explore our facilities.

To cancel or modify a previously requested Monday and Friday tour, please go to Admissions: Guided Tours for 2016. To cancel a special request tour, please email email@example.com
Be sure to allow time to purchase a parking permit before the tour. Daily parking permits can be purchased for $5.00 at the visitor information center at the Grand Avenue entrance of campus, or at pay stations found in General Parking lots. Metered spaces are also available throughout campus, though many have time limits of less than two hours. A campus map shows nearby parking lots and pay stations (for a legend of parking symbols in the campus map, click Help and on the drop-down menu, select Parking).
Parking on campus fills up quickly, so allow extra time to walk from your car. Traffic on campus is very congested between 10 minutes before the hour and 10 minutes after the hour, as students move from class to class.
Other tours are available during your campus visit. The University Tour provides an overview of all six colleges, campus, and facilities such as the new Recreation Center.
CAED tours are NOT available during the first week of the quarter, finals week, weekends, holidays, and summer break. (Click here for the current academic calendar).
