A large group is defined as a party with ten or more guests.

If you are traveling with a large group of students in the process of applying for undergraduate studies submit a Group Visit Request Form (doc) at least 3 weeks prior to the date of your intended visit. Please email your completed form to Kip Conlon, Visitors Center, at ugrad-group@columbia.edu. This email address should only be used for group visit requests. Please note that submitting a request does not confirm your group visit. Your group visit to campus is only confirmed after you have received an email from Kip Conlon approving your request.

Prospective undergraduate group tours are only offered during the regularly scheduled information session and campus tour times. The Visitors Center can only accommodate a maximum of 40 students per group and does not sponsor group visits on weekends or during University holidays.

For all other guests, email visitorscenter@columbia.edu a minimum of three weeks in advance to inquire about availability. The following information should be included in your email:

  • Two prospective dates and times for your visit
  • Name and location of school or organization
  • Number of participants
  • Number of chaperones
  • Grade level if applicable
  • Special needs or requests
