Campus tours

Arieal view of ANU campus

The Australian National University welcomes visits from people around Australia and the world. We encourage visits from both individuals and groups.

What to expect

We tailor tours to meet your individual needs so be sure to tell us what you'd like to see.

Students from the University assist with the tours and are able to provide first-hand information about their experiences at the University and the programs that they have undertaken.

Typically a tour will provide an overview of our facilities such as:

  • accommodation
  • libraries
  • computing and science laboratories
  • lecture theatres
  • sporting and recreational areas


Tours run throughout the year, Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, and require a minimum of three working days notice to be coordinated. An individual tour usually runs for an hour.
