Requesting a Group Visit

To request a group visit, please submit the Group Visit Request form. We ask that you give us at least two weeks notice in arranging your visit. We will not consider requests made less than two weeks in advance of the requested date.

All fields of the group visit request form must be completed. Incomplete forms will not be considered. 

High school groups are accommodated on a first-come first-served basis. Only one group can be accommodated per date/time. Group Visits will take place rain or shine. Your visit will only be cancelled if AU is closed due to inclement weather.

To request accommodations for persons with disabilities, please call 202-885-6000 at least two weeks in advance of your confirmed, scheduled visit.


Student Conduct

Visiting groups will be accompanied by adult chaperones/teachers/sponsors at all times. We require one chaperone for every 15 students. The ultimate responsibility for each group rests with these designated adults, not American University. Visiting students are expected to conduct themselves as respectful visitors to the campus and not demonstrate disruptive behavior during any aspect of their campus visit. Should such behavior occur, the American University admissions staff and/or tour guides have the right to terminate the campus visit.
