Campus Visits

The LSU campus is rated one of the most beautiful campuses in the world, but don't take our word for it. Let us show you around! From hundred-year-old oak trees to the friendliest squirrels around, the LSU campus is waiting for you and your family to come explore.

We welcome prospective students and their families. Most students who visit are in the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades, but younger students are welcome, also. While it never rains in Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge weather is quite unpredictable, so we recommend that guests prepare for all weather conditions.

LSU Campus Visits

Campus Visits are offered Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. School excuses are offered as needed.

LSU campus visits, led by our LSU staff members or campus liaisons, will take you to the most loved and important sites in the center of campus: The quadrangle, memorial tower, the Union, Tiger Stadium, the Business Education Complex, Patrick Taylor Hall and the UREC. 

The tour does not include residence halls, athletic facilities, or senior colleges.


Campus visits are free and registration is required. Due to capacity restrictions, we recommend that families register at least two to four weeks in advance. If the time of the campus visit is not visible on your preferred visit date, this indicates that the tour is at maximum capacity, and we ask that you select your second preferred date.
