    In-Person Campus Tours

    Tour Program

    Our In-Person Campus Tours are offered at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., Monday to Friday – with exception to holiday and event schedules.


    During this 90-minute general campus tour, visitors will be guided through our beautiful campus. Student tour guides will:   

    • Showcase a variety of buildings including residence, study spaces, lecture halls and dining options
    • Provide information on residence and meal plans
    • Share their experience and cover student support services available
    • Answer your questions about becoming a future Marauder.  

    Restricted Access to Residence

    Due to students moving out of residence, our custodial staff will need time to clean the building. For Campus Tours booked between May 1-11, visitors will see a mock residence room (the key difference is the mock residence room does not have washroom facilities). Should you feel that seeing a residence room with a washroom is important, please ensure you register for a tour on or after May 15th.

    Impact of Sterling Street Closure

    The City of Hamilton has closed Sterling Street for sewer repair as of April 27th. The closure, which will impact all vehicles, will be near the university entrance between Forsyth Avenue and Whitton Avenue. Traffic will be delayed, and visitors are encouraged to leave extra time when planning their trip to campus. We encourage visitors to use King Street and Forsyth Avenue as the detour route. We thank you for your patience.

    Program-Specific Tours

    Our guided tours cover general information about campus.
    Program-specific tours are offered by the 
    Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering.
