Admissions tour guide gives a campus tour to high school students and parents.

Group Visits

Each year, St. Thomas welcomes groups from a diverse range of high schools, charter schools and community-based organizations to our St. Paul campus. These group visits consist of a 45-minute admissions presentation and an hour-long campus tour.

Our Policy

We do our best to accommodate as many groups of high school students as possible, but group visits will not be accommodated:

  • Mondays, Fridays and weekends
  • During admissions events or university breaks or holidays
  • The week of midterms and finals
  • The months of May - August

Please note:

  • Group visits consist of a tour of our St. Paul campus and a 45-minute admissions presentation as well as additional appointment options. The admissions presentation will cover information about both our 4-year program and the Dougherty Family College.
  • Group visit requests will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. We do reach capacity quickly.
  • We can accommodate one group visit per week.
  • One adult chaperone is required for every 10 students. It is the responsibility of each chaperone to monitor the behavior of their students. Improper student conduct can result in a group losing future visit privileges.
  • The University does not pay for group visit transportation.
  • A complimentary lunch on campus is available upon request. 

Requests for student groups younger than ninth grade should be directed to the St. Thomas Volunteer Center. They can be reached at or (651) 962-5262.
