The following information is to assist you in getting the most out of your tour. Prior to your visit you will be contacted to confirm arrangements and to ensure that all materials sent to you have been received.
Where do we meet?
You will meet your designated tour guide at the north entrance in the A.E. McKenzie Building fifteen minutes before the commencement of your tour. The Recruitment Office will email/fax to you prior to your arrival a campus map, the name of your tour guide, parking information and an agreed upon itinerary.
Visitor parking is located in lots 5 and 6 (not 6A). Lot 6 is located west of the Western Centennial Auditorium. Guests arriving by bus must park in Lot 5 at the corner of Princess & 20th Street. Bus drivers may drop students off at the north entrance of the A.E. McKenzie Building and must proceed to Lot 5. Bus drivers are required to pay the parking fee of $.50 per hour. Please do not park your bus on the street as traffic vision is blocked for regular university students/traffic.
Both parking lots charge $0.50 per hour and tickets are available at the ticket dispenser located at each entrance. We are not responsible for any parking tickets incurred during your visit, so please make sure you purchase the correct amount of tickets and display them on your front dash.
The Recruitment Office requests that you arrive at your destination at least 10 minutes in advance and at least 15 minutes if you plan to attend a lecture. There will be a student ambassador to meet you at the north entrance of the A.E. McKenzie Building. Student ambassadors are senior university students trained to provide tours to new students.
