Visiting international groups must email visitorinfo@stanford.edu to book a group tour. Because of the large demand for tours, visiting domestic school groups are given priority.

A limited number of private tours can be accommodated in any given day, so groups are encouraged to call well in advance of the date they are hoping to visit.

If you are coming to campus with a group of 9 or less, you may join one of our Campus Walking Tours — no reservation is required.
