Students at a School Group Visit

Large Group Visits

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 Visitor Center can arrange a rental for you through Purdue’s Transportation Service.

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