CVM Group Tours


CVM Tour Policy for Groups

Group Tours for grades K-5 are offered through the Office of Continuing Education & Outreach. Please contact them regarding group tours for this age group.

Educational/Admissions Tours for middle, high school and college level groups related to animal science, health professions, 4-H clubs, pre-vet clubs, etc.** are arranged through Johanna Donovan, Assistant Director, Student Services. These tours provide information for groups of applicants, potential applicants or those middle, high school or college student groups who are interested in the field of veterinary medicine. Tours do not include visiting the animal wards, research labs or farm. Tours are available in a limited number each semester and only Monday-Friday between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Group tours are not available nights, weekends or holidays.

Please email with your request for a group tour. Please include your name and contact information, group name, number of students for the tour (20 maximum), and requested tour date and time in the email. Staff will respond to your request for a group tour within one week. Requests for group tours should be submitted as early as possible but at least one-two months in advance. Be advised that we typically are booked for tours several weeks to months in advance.

**At this time, we are unable to offer non-admission related tours to social, civic, and special interest groups**
