Our passionate and knowledgeable team of campus tour guides are current Carleton students who can’t wait to share their stories about what it’s really like to be a Carleton student. We encourage prospective students and families to take a walking tour of our celebrated campus – at any time of the year!
COVID-19 Safety Measures: Although proof of vaccination is no longer required, it may become necessary to reinstate proof of vaccination requirements on short notice if public health advice changes. On the recommendation of Ottawa Public Health, Carleton will be maintaining the mandatory COVID-19 Mask Policy until further notice. A well-fitting mask must fit securely over the nose, mouth and chin and is in contact with the surrounding face without gaping.
Parking: When arriving on campus, please park in any visitor spot in P9, which is located next to Robertson Hall. Once parked, guests can report to the Tour Centre (209 Robertson Hall) where they must enter their license plate information with their Tour Guide to register their vehicle. Parking is compliments of Parking Services.
