Visit Grand Canyon University's Campus

Experience GCU Through a Guided Tour

Campus Tours

Immerse yourself in the Grand Canyon University (GCU) student experience by taking a guided tour from the best person to tell you about it: a student!

Tours depart from the Antelope Reception Center (ARC), located in the Student Advising Services Building. Our campus tour is a walking tour encompassing over 2.5 miles of our beautiful campus. Highlights will include previews of classrooms and labs, a residence hall suite, the Library/Student Union and our newly opened Canyon Activity Center. Tours can be personalized based on your interests.

With our commitment to following CDC guidance for safety, GCU has made the thoughtful decision to adjust tour processes and offerings at this time.

Campus is open for tours and/or meetings with university admissions counselors upon appointment. Schedule your visit today through the link in the Visit Campus section.

If you would like to take a tour of GCU from home, participate in our online GCU LIVE Streaming tours as a means to experience campus using a smartphone or computer. These are 60-minute interactive experiences led by a GCU Tour Guide that include a real-time tour of campus, program-specific information from a program expert and a Q&A with students and an admissions counselor.

GCU LIVE Streaming Tours run Monday through Saturday. Sign up for a GCU LIVE Streaming Tour online today!
