Anthony at Eagle Expo

We apologize for the inconvenience, but at this time all of our tours through August 12th are currently full. We will also be closed for tours August 13-22 for team training and the first week of the Fall 2014 semester.  The next available guaranteed tour dates begin August 25, 2014.

Due to the high demand for college tours during summer break, we have limited space to provide tours for everyone who would like to visit FGCU.

To participate in a guided campus tour after August 25, make a reservation using the online reservation form below. All available dates are highlighted on the calendar in green.

If you can only visit campus during a date that is currently full or unavailable, you are welcome to come explore campus on your own during that time by taking a self-guided tour.  Just stop by the Welcome Center anytime Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. when you arrive on campus and we will provide you with a campus map and a self-guided tour brochure.  We will also be happy to any questions you may have regarding FGCU and Admissions.

You may also choose to wait on stand-by for possible cancellations or no-show reservations. Stand-by seats on tours are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. We do not take a wait-list in advance. If you’d like to wait on stand-by, please arrive for our tour to the Margaret S. Sugden Welcome Center (the first building on the right through the main entrance of FGCU) at least 15 minutes early.  We will be able to determine if we can accommodate your group as soon as the tour is ready to depart. If we cannot accommodate your group on tour as a stand-by, we will provide your family with a self-guided tour brochure which will allow you to explore campus on your own.

As a reminder, no tours will be available via reservation or stand-by August 13-24, 2014.


The best way to evaluate a college or university is to spend time with its students, faculty, and administrators.

Reservations can be made in the following ways:

Once you have requested a tour, please wait to receive a confirmation from us before finalizing travel plans. If your requested date and time is available, we will confirm your tour appointment with a confirmation e-mail message or via a phone call (if no e-mail is provided). Our tour confirmations are sent individually - please allow us 48 hours to confirm your visit.  Please be sure to monitor your SPAM box as well - we have recently discovered gmail addresses are sending our confirmations to spam.  We may not be able to accommodate all requested dates and times, but our team will work hard to find a time that works best with your schedule - we want you to see our fabulous campus!

prior to their scheduled tour.

The tour takes approximately 1.5 hours and is driving and walking. Our tour
guides are also admissions representatives and will be answering any
questions about admissions and providing information packets. If you are
traveling by bus, you will simply need to stop by the Welcome Center and
the tour guides will then join your group and direct the bus drivers enroute
to begin the tour. To make a group tour reservation, please contact
Rachel via e-mail at

The tour routes are accessible*** to wheelchairs.

***Please notify us 72 hours in advance for any special accommodations that will
need to be made.

We do not offer tours on dates when the campus is closed. We also have need
to close tours due to peak season and large numbers of early tour reservations.
We will do our best to accommodate all visitors, however, it is not always
possible due to space limitations. If we are unable to accommodate a guided
tour for you, we will be happy to supply you with information on taking a
self-guided tour - just stop in the Welcome Center.
