Guided Campus Tours

Seeing the college first-hand is what the campus visit is all about. You'll benefit from the insight of dedicated student tour guides.

These are current Pitt-Johnstown students who direct prospective students and their families around campus. These students live here, eat here, go to class here, and are very often the best source of campus information.

A typical campus tour will:

  • Usually include 2 or 3 families
  • Be a walking tour of campus
  • Take about one hour to complete
  • Walk through all academic buildings
  • Point out student service offices
  • Take the families inside a freshman residence hall
  • Point out other housing options
  • Provide an informal forum for asking questions

Group Tours

For those wanting “just a look” at our beautiful campus, this option is for you! One of our student guides will take you on a full walking small group tour of campus and, after returning, you will receive a Pitt-Johnstown information packet to take home. To schedule a tour, please contact the Admissions Welcome Center at 814-269-7050.
