Campus Tours are a great way to learn about Rio Hondo College, and to gain awareness of our beautiful campus. Student Ambassadors are trained to offer campus tours for perspective students and families, new students, and guests of the college. Please see below for important information on how to request a campus tour. Campus Tours will last approximately 45 min. and will start and end at the Science building located on the subfloor near the tram stop.
Campus Tour Schedule
In order to ensure that Student Ambassadors have a balance between academics and their roles as Student Ambassadors, Campus Tours are only conducted during the following days and times:
- Thursdays 10am-2pm

If the schedule above does not work with your schedule, please contact the Student Life & Leadership Department to request separate accommodations or a map and self-guided tour route. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Tour cancellations will be required at least 24 hours so that we can notify our Student Ambassadors. Please call our office as soon as possible. You will need to fill out the Campus Tour Request Form in order to reschedule another Campus Tour. Rescheduling a Campus Tour requires the same turnaround time of ten (10) business days.
Should your visit require consideration for a physical disability, please indicate that on the Campus Tour Request Form. For further information, please call the Student Life & Leadership Department. Please be advised that pets are not permitted on campus unless they are service dogs.
We are always excited to invite children of all ages to explore our campus. In order to ensure the safety of our guests as well as the integrity of our Campus Tours, we require one (1) adult chaperon for every fifteen (15) minors on each Campus Tour. We are unable to lead tours without chaperons, and groups are organized so that no more than fifteen (15) people are in each tour. In order to make the experience as wonderful as possible, we ask that our chaperons set rules and guidelines prior to attending the campus tour. Student Ambassadors will not be enforcing those rules and guidelines, and we hope to have your support with keeping the group together.
