Campus Tours

Guided Tours

Join a group tour led by an NIC ambassador!

We’ll show you around campus, explore classrooms, shops and studios and campus amenities & more. Tours start at the welcome booth every 30-minutes. Space is limited, first come first served.

Four reasons to choose a guided tour

  1. First-hand experience from our NIC ambassadors 
  2. The tours are convenient, there's no getting lost with us 
  3. Meet faculty and ask questions about their programs 
  4. See parts of NIC not usually open to the public 

Self-guided Tours

Prefer to explore on your own?

Pick-up a campus map from the welcome booth and check out points of interest along a self-guided route.

And if you do have a question, an NIC ambassador will be close by.
