» Self-guided Tours

If you are visiting campus and a guided campus tour isn't available, you can register for a self-guided tour.

After selecting a day and time to visit, you’ll get a confirmation email with a parking pass and link to download our Chapman University Tours app. The app provides audio commentary from current students and tour routes for: 

  • Orange Campus: This follows the same route as our guided campus tours and includes several student life and academic areas, including Argyros Forum (the living room of campus), Musco Center for the Arts, Keck Center for Science and Engineering and the Residence Life area.
  • West Campus Area: This area includes our Crean College of Health & Behavioral Sciences and Dodge College of Film & Media Arts. We recommend this tour for those interested in either of those college’s majors.

You can take a virtual campus tour before arriving to familiarize yourself with the area and help decide which tour(s) you want to take.
