FAU is offering limited capacity campus tours for potential applicants for the entering class of 2021. Tours will be limited in capacity due to the recent effects of COVID-19. We look forward to welcoming you to campus. Please be advised to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for the Florida summer with sunscreen and water.
As part of resuming campus tours, we have introduced some measures to ensure the safety of all our guests, students and staff. We REQUIRE that you please read the following information prior to registering for a campus tour.
- Tours are limited to a capacity of 15 people per tour. We will increase capacity as restrictions and guidelines allow.
- Tours will be limited to four persons per party/family. Please ensure you only register guests in your party who are confirmed to attend, as our campus tours have a high-demand and a limited capacity.
- All guests attending a tour MUST register in advance. We are unable to accommodate walk-in guests at this time.
- ONLY registered guests will be permitted to join the tour. As our tours are at capacity, we cannot accommodate any additional guests who are not registered.
- Please adhere to our rules and regulations outlined in the link provided upon registration. These regulations are put in place to ensure the health and safety of our guests, students, faculty, and staff.
- Access to campus buildings will be limited during the tour, and we are unable to provide access to our residence halls at this time. A 360 degree virtual housing tour is available here.
We follow all guidelines and regulations outlined by the Florida Department of Health, which includes travel restrictions and quarantine periods. View guidelines here.
What We Expect From You
- Guests will be required to wear face masks/coverings throughout their campus visit both indoors and outdoors. The removal of masks is not permitted at any point during the tour.
- Guests are expected to arrive with their own face mask/covering. Please note, masks will NOT be provided during your visit.
- All guests must adhere to our social distancing policy and must maintain socially distancing throughout their visit.
- We have numerous hand sanitizing stations placed around campus. There will be times we ask our guests to sanitize their hands.
- Our student tour guides will be there to ensure that our policies and procedures for reopening are being carried out, so we ask that you support them in what they are doing by following their instruction.
