To request a group visit, please submit the Group Visit Request form. We ask that you give us at least two weeks notice in arranging your visit. We will not consider requests made less than two weeks in advance of the requested date.
All fields of the group visit request form must be completed. Incomplete forms will not be considered.
To request accommodations for persons with disabilities, please call 202-885-6000 at least two weeks in advance of your confirmed, scheduled visit.
Visiting groups will be accompanied by adult chaperones/teachers/sponsors at all times. We require one chaperone for every 15 students. The ultimate responsibility for each group rests with these designated adults, not American University. Visiting students are expected to conduct themselves as respectful visitors to the campus and not demonstrate disruptive behavior during any aspect of their campus visit. Should such behavior occur, the American University admissions staff and/or tour guides have the right to terminate the campus visit.
