Group Visit

Groups of high school students representing an educational institution or a community agency interested in visiting NC State University are welcome to stop by the Joyner Visitor Center between the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. At the Visitor Center, we provide admissions information, campus maps, and self-guided tour information. Our staff will be available to answer questions and provide information regarding the University upon request.

We recommend downloading a self guided tour prior to your visit. The self guided tour is available as a smart phone app or as a printed-readable tour.
