Tours are now open to explore the St. Petersburg campus in-person! Experience St. Petersburg’s breezy, waterfront campus with one of our student Navigator Tour Guides while learning about USF St. Petersburg's campus academic programs, student organizations and waterfront recreation such as sailing or kayaking.

To ensure the safety and health of our campus community, the on-campus tour experience will have some modifications. Here's how it will work:

  • Face coverings encouraged
  • Physical distancing encouraged
  • COVID-19 Symptom Check Questionnaire during registration and upon arrival

Grab your sunglasses and get to know the St. Petersburg campus of USF.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND
  • Tours are approximately 60-90 minutes.
  • St. Petersburg is a tropical climate and the tour is outdoors. Doesn’t sound so bad, right?! Even though most of our days are filled with blue skies and sunshine, we ask that you please consider humidity and rain showers as a possibility. Expect a lot of walking, so please dress accordingly.

If you have questions, please contact the Campus Tours Office at 727-873-4562.

GROUP TOURS

We offer tours for groups of 10 – 80 students. Every semester, we schedule a select number of Group Tours based on classroom and student Navigator Tour Guide availability. Preference will be given to high school groups and organizations serving high school students.

We are excited to offer virtual Group Tours to serve our school partners who are continuing virtual classes this year. Our student Navigator Tour Guides can join your virtual classroom to provide a guided tour of USF’s St. Petersburg campus through our 360 virtual tour and can answer all of your students’ questions about the academic and student life opportunities our campus offers. Depending on availability, an Admissions Counselor can also join to present on the USF Admissions process and answer your questions about dates, deadlines and requirements. Preference will be given to high school groups and organizations serving high school students. Group Tour requests must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the preferred date. You should receive a response within one week. Group Tours are not confirmed until you receive an email notification that includes tour date and time. Please keep in mind that Group Tours can only be scheduled at the availability of our student Navigator Tour Guides, so they can only be confirmed after they have registered for classes for that semester.

CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES

We want to honor the hard work all of our professors and staff have put into creating a safe environment for students taking in-person classes and in moving their classes to the virtual environment, so we will therefore not be offering any in-person or online classroom experiences.
