Please understand that the only sanctioned tours offered by CSU Channel Islands are those organized through CSUCI's Admissions and Recruitment and University Outreach departments. Our staff and student ambassadors are highly trained with the most up-to-date and accurate information. We ask that you refrain from contacting any additional source for admissions information or a campus tour. Thank you for your cooperation!

The Admissions Office at CSU Channel Islands provides an opportunity for families and individuals to receive a CSUCI guided tour. Students will learn about the application process, campus resources, and student life.

In-Person Campus Tours:

We will be providing weekday tours Monday-Friday at 2:00 p.m. (except holidays). The campus tour is a walking tour. We recommend that you wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen and bring water and snacks. Parking is complimentary as long as you print your parking permit which will be received via email, or a copy can be retrieved from the Admissions desk located in Sage Hall. Once registered, you will receive event and parking/permit information via email. 

Changes to Our Tours:
Check-in will be conducted at the front counter in Sage Hall. We are now including an in-person presentation from one of our student ambassadors as part of the tour. Our ambassadors will be happy to answer any questions you may have during your on-campus scheduled tour.

Mask Requirement:

As of September 6th, in accordance with university policies, we are no longer requiring guests and students to wear masks indoors or outdoors on campus (regardless of vaccination status). Please view our campus safety rules for visitors. If you have visited our campus and have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive, please self-report this information as soon as possible.
