The College of Veterinary Medicine offers public tours of its facilities to groups and individuals. However, our patients remain our first priority, so tour opportunities are limited and are not a hands-on experience. We must also be mindful of biosecurity, liability, patient confidentiality and operational issues, therefore the following restrictions have been implemented.
- Visitors must be at least 10 years old to visit the hospitals
- Group size is limited to 30 people
- No photos or videos are allowed to be taken in the hospitals due to patient confidentiality
- Visitors must refrain from touching patients
- Talking is allowed but noise must be kept to a minimum while in the hospitals
- Monday through Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (lunch hour)
- Tours are not offered on weekends, evenings, or holidays
- Reservations are required and should be made at least three days prior to your visit
- Prospective student tours which include a meeting with our admissions coordinator should be made with firstname.lastname@example.org, additional details are below.
A tour takes about one hour and goes through the small and large animal hospitals, the diagnostic laboratory, and the teaching facilities. We reserve the right to exclude individuals from a tour due to biosecurity issues, or due to failure to compy with their tour guide's instructions.
