Parties with five or more guests should consider scheduling a group tour so that Morehouse can accommodate your request while remaining in compliance with COVID-19 visitor protocols. We ask that you register in the group. Please be mindful that larger tour groups are subject to being split into smaller groups. In addition to registration, we ask that you contact Antonio McFarland, Senior Recruitment Manager, at antonio.mcfarland@morehouse.edu to confirm your attendance or if you have any additional questions.

Tours are given Monday-Friday by appointment, except for holidays, academic calendar breaks, testing periods, and other closing dates. There is a limited number of spaces available during the given time slots for guided tours, and space reservations are on a first-come basis. Visitors must register for an on-campus tour. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept walk-up visitors due to safety reasons.
