Campus Tour Tips:
-We recommend you arrive at least 30 minutes before your tour begins.
-Touring our tropical Boca Raton campus for a walking tour calls for comfortable clothing and shoes.
-Hydration is also important so we recommend you bring a refillable water bottle with you, as we have water bottle refilling stations on the tour.
-Depending on the forecast, please be prepared for rain in our tropical climate, especially if you are touring with us in the afternoon this summer. Due to weather forecasts and protecting the safey of our guests and student leaders, our campus visits may not be able to conduct a walking tour due to inclement weather. If this occurs, we invite guests for a special campus presentation within the Admissions Theater to take our virtual tour experience.
-Please note that our campus tours are not offered on certain days such as state and university holidays and are not offered on certain days during our winter and summer breaks when classes are not in session. We appreciate your understanding in these instances.
