Large Group (Bus Visits) Sessions/Tours

If you represent a high school, community organization or community college, and you would like to bring a group of students/individuals to campus, please email us at buadmiss@bloomu.edu to ensure you receive the correct group visit request form. Our daily visits are designed for families visiting, and not large organizations or groups. Once you submit the bus trip request form, we will be happy to review your request and determine if we can accommodate the date and time.

Your arrival to campus

Once you arrive on campus, use your mobile phone to help you navigate through campus and find the beginning location of your visit identified in your confirmation letter or email (Visitor Map). Remember to place your parking pass on your rearview mirror. If you forgot your pass at home, you can stop at the BU Police Station. We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!

Things to remember for your visit

» Special Requests: If you have special interest in a service or program of the university or facilities not on the tour that you'd especially like to see, mention it to the admissions receptionist upon your arrival. We will try to assist with a connection.

» Wear Comfortable Shoes: Part of the campus tour is a walking tour which is approximately one to 1 1/2 hours. This loops around most of lower campus. The campus is handicapped accessible.

» Where to Eat? In addition to the usual campus fare at several venues, there are many independent and chain restaurants in downtown Bloomsburg and along Route 11, just south of campus.
