Visit the Tampa Campus

Tampa In-Person Tour

In light of continuing concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus), the University of South Florida has made the decision to modify upcoming campus tours, housing tours, and other events to meet new health & safety guidelines. Accordingly, all visitation programs will monitor face coverings, physical distancing and screen for COVID-19 symptoms. For the latest updates on how USF is responding to the coronavirus threat, please visit:


Tours are now open to explore the Tampa campus in-person! To ensure the safety and health of our campus community, the on-campus tour experience will have some modifications. Here's how:

  • Small group sizes (1 person and 1 guest per registration)
  • Monitored physical distancing
  • Sanitization checkpoints
  • Face coverings required at all times
  • Entirely outdoor program

In-person tours are available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Our Wednesday tours are hosted exclusively for our admitted students. Tour registration prioritizes our admitted Bulls to ensure they are able to check out the spaces they will live and learn before making their final college decision.
