Admissions tour guide gives a campus tour to high school students and parents.

Group Visits

Each year, St. Thomas welcomes groups from a diverse range of high schools, charter schools and community-based organizations to our St. Paul campus. These group visits consist of a 30-minute admissions presentation and an hour-long campus tour.

Our Policy

We do our best to accommodate as many groups of high school students as possible, but group visits will not be accommodated:

  • Mondays, Fridays and weekends
  • During admission events or university breaks or holidays
  • The week of midterms and finals
  • The months of April and May
  • At our Minneapolis campus

Group visit requests will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. We are able to accommodate one group visit per week.

Please bring one adult chaperone for every 10 students. It is the responsibility of each chaperone to monitor the behavior of their students. Improper student conduct can result in a group losing future visit privileges.

The university does not pay for group transportation or meals. For those groups willing to pay for meals, we can assist you in making on-campus meal arrangements.

Requests for student groups younger than ninth grade should be directed to the St. Thomas Volunteer Center. They can be reached at community@stthomas.edu or (651) 962-5262.
