Group Visit Guidelines

Advanced Scheduling

Please contact us at least two weeks prior to your visit. We will do our best to accommodate your date request; however, due to campus events and staffing limitations, we may need to consider alternate dates.

Visit Preparation and Timely Arrival

Campus tours will include a substantial amount of walking. Please encourage all participants to wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Arriving on time is important. Please realize that tour guides' schedules are limited. In the event of a late arrival, your tour will likely be modified.

Meal Options

While the Office of Admission does not provide meals for groups, Aramark Dining Services offers affordable menus to groups at various rates. For more information about their catering options, please contact them at CaterSLU@slu.edu.

Group Ratio

Chaperones will be required to accompany school groups at all times during the visit. Our required ratio is as follows:

  • High school: One adult for every 15 students
  • Elementary and middle school: One adult for every 10 students

Reciprocal Respect

We welcome your group to campus. Please ensure your participants show the same respect to the University and our students, faculty and staff.

Cancellation Notice

If you find it necessary to cancel your visit, it is essential that you give at least three days notice. Failure to do so may limit future schedule availability for your group.
