Group of people looking at mountains while on campus tour

Let us show you around! Our guided, on-campus tours and information sessions will give you a better understanding of our location, academic programs, and student life at Colorado State. Get a real feel for CSU and what it means to be a Ram by joining us in Fort Collins.

Our tours and information sessions allow you to build your schedule based on your interests. A variety of options are available so you can tailor your time to suit your needs.

  • Admissions information and general campus tour: Admissions sessions and tours are offered daily. These tours are guided by trained student ambassadors and last approximately 90 minutes. Tour stops include the Oval, the Lory Student Center, the library, a classroom, the campus rec center, and a residence hall.
  • Academics and student life: Offerings for academics and student life are different based on the day, so we recommend that you look at several days to see the different opportunities available.
  • Housing: Residence hall showrooms are set up in Allison Hall, Parmelee Hall, Academic Village, and Laurel Village for drop-in viewing from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday-Saturday. A mock dorm room also is set up in the Welcome Center. Additionally, you will visit a residence hall if you take a general campus tour.
