Three people walking down sidewalk on campus

Want to see Colorado State University at your own pace? Our free, self-guided tour app will lead you on a tour of campus. The app’s augmented reality feature lets you use your camera on your phone to hear and see more about each building. And if you don’t want to download the app, you can simply use the self-guided tour website.

You can choose a general tour, or enter a few details about your academic and involvement goals to view a more personalized tour based on your goals and the time you have. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  • Step 1: Download the free, self-guided tour app for Apple/iOS or Android.
  • Step 2: Fill out your profile, including your user type (parent/family, prospective student, etc.)
  • Step 3: Choose either a pre-made tour, which takes you through key spaces around campus, or choose your own adventure on a personalized tour based on your interests!

The app will use your location to provide walking directions, information for each stop, and an augmented reality feature that allows you to explore more about the area around you.
