Large Groups

Visitors touring campus in large groups (10 or more) should schedule their visit through Purdue's Welcome Center.

Four weeks' advance notice is greatly appreciated when scheduling a large group walking or riding tour of campus. Note: If you would like to arrange a driving tour, but do not have a vehicle large enough to accommodate your group, the Welcome Center can arrange a rental for you through Purdue's Transportation Service.

Complete the Welcome Center online tour request form to schedule your large group visit.
