Group Visit

    Providing a safe, healthy environment for our campus community is a top priority for Wayne State University. Therefore, due to concerns regarding coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and recent developments in the state of Michigan, the university has suspended group campus visits, effective March 16 through April 30.

    Requesting a Group Visit
    Group visits are scheduled for 6 or more college-bound students, educational organizations, and other special visitors. Wayne State can accommodate group visits on select weekdays at 10:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. Group visits are not offered on weekends. We can accommodate groups up to 50 guests at a time.

    Group visits are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis and only one tour can be accommodated on available dates. Please request your visit date at least two weeks in advance. We will try to accommodate your preferred date; however, you will be asked to list two additional dates. We are unable to accommodate groups larger than 50.

    Group Ratio
    A group will consist of at least 6 participants. Chaperones are required to accompany the group at all times.

    Required ratio:
    High school groups – one chaperone for every 20 students
    Middle school groups – one chaperone for every 10 students
    Elementary school groups – one chaperone for every 7 students

    Arriving to Wayne State
    An email with visit details will be sent once confirmed. Typically, group visits will begin in the Welcome Center (located on W Warren Ave & Woodward Ave) for a brief presentation followed by a 90-minute walking tour of campus.

    We ask that you arrive at least ten minutes before your scheduled visit. The length of the campus tour will be modified due to late arrival; a delay of 15 minutes or more could result in the need to reschedule. If your group is delayed, please let us know by calling 313-577-9502.

    Cancellation Notice
    Please provide at least 48 hours’ notice when canceling a group visit. You can cancel by contacting 313-577-9502 or emailing

    Special Requests
    Beyond your visit, there are several other ways to experience campus, such as attending a planetarium show or enjoying lunch on your own in a dining hall. Let us know if your group is interested in extending your day at Wayne State and we can help coordinate the details.

    The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is unable to provide meals for group visits to campus. However, there are still plenty of options including purchasing meal vouchers for one of our two dining halls or individual meal at the Student Center.
