Tours

COVID-19 Guidelines:

While we are offering limited in-person tours, we encourage prospective groups to choose the virtual tour option, if they can, for the safety of our tour guides during COVID-19.

Due to COVID-19: In-person guided tours are only given to parties of 4 and smaller. Individuals must remain at least 6 feet apart during the tour and wear face masks during the tour.  Individuals will be asked to wash their hands before the tour begins and after the tour has concluded.

Thank you for your interest in scheduling a tour of the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida. The tours we provide are of Weimer Hall, which is where the College of Journalism and Communications is housed. The tour usually lasts about 45 minutes to an hour.
