Visiting the Tyler Facilities

Guided Tours

During the Semester: Tours of the Tyler art facilities are offered most weekdays at 11 a.m. Tours of the Architecture facilities are only offered on Mondays. An appointment is required to take a tour, please contact the Tyler Admissions Office directly at 215.777.9090 or through email at to check our tour availability and schedule your tour. Your visit will include an information session with a member of the Admissions staff as well as a guided tour with one of our Student Ambassadors.

Information on where to park can be found here.

Please Note: Tours do not include a portfolio review. If you'd like to have your work reviewed before or after your tour, please call or email us to set up an appointment. We also highly encourage attending one of our Portfolio Review Days at the Tyler School of Art, which include an optional tour after the reviews are finished.


Self Guided Tours

If you are interested in touring the Tyler School of Art but are unable to make our usual guided tour time, a self guided tour may be the solution for you. For a self guided tour, we provide you with a map of the building and allow you to look around on your own. You can also speak with a counselor before or after your tour if one is available. If you are interested in taking a self guided tour, please us at 215.777.9090 or email


Summer Guided Tours: We offer tours most weekdays throughout the summer at 11 a.m. You can tour the architecture facilities on Tuesdays, but please check with Admissions as there is construction within the building this summer (2017). Please call or email in advance to register for a tour at 215-777-9090 or email

Please note that some departments are often closed during the Summer. If there is a particular department you wish to see during your tour, please check in with us regarding studio closures before scheduling your tour.


Graduate Tours

Students interested in a graduate program should contact the department of interest directly to speak with faculty. While Tyler Admissions can give general tours, we do not have access to graduate studios. For contact information on your department of interest, please call 215.777.9090 or email

Please note that the Graphic & Interactive Design department is not able to give graduate tours. If you are interested in this program, we suggest that you come to our annual Fall Graduate Open House or take a self-guided tour.
