Campus Tours

A campus tour is one of the the best ways to see what life at SFU is like, learn about the student experience here, and have your questions answered by our friendly and knowledgeable student tour guides. 

We offer both in person and virtual campus tours.

Located on unceded Coast Salish Territory, the traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), q̓icə̓y̓ (Katzie), Kwantlen, Qayqayt, Semiahmoo, and Tsawwassen nations, the three campuses of Simon Fraser University include a vibrant Indigenous community.  Simon Fraser University recognizes the diversity in student identities, cultures, languages and learning styles. The university provides programming and services that are inclusive of Indigenous learners and promotes reconciliation.

Visit us in person

We offer regularly scheduled tours of our Burnaby and Surrey campuses Monday to Friday and some Saturdays. Our student-led tours explore our residences, the library, the gym, classrooms, academic buildings, gardens, and more. Join us to see if SFU is the right fit for you!

Indigenous student group tours

We are pleased to offer programming with our Indigenous Student Centre during your visit. You will learn about the land on which SFU is situated, our academic programs and exciting projects in our faculties, hear from current Indigenous students, and engage in culturally relevant activities. Our Indigenous Student Recruiter will be available to meet with you and answer your questions.

Self-guided campus tours

If you’d like to explore our Burnaby campus at your own pace, stop by Student Central (just inside Maggie Benston Centre, across from the library) and pick up a copy of our self-guided campus tour brochure.

Group tours

If you would like to book a campus tour for a student group or a class, please email tour@sfu.ca. (Minimum seven participants.)

     

Explore our campus virtually

Our virtual campus tours are a great option if you are unable to join us in person. One of our student tour guides will take you through our three campuses and speak about their experience at SFU. There will also be plenty of time for you to ask questions. These tours are hosted on Zoom.
