*The safety of our visitors is our number one priority here at the IU Visitor Information Center. We take into consideration weather, travel and campus conditions when deciding whether to amend or cancel tours due to Adverse Weather Conditions. When conditions warrant, the decision to amend or cancel tours is coordinated with appropriate officials and is communicated to our staff as well as the visitors of the affected campus.
Also, self-guided walking tours are possible. Simply follow the progression of locations as included in our informative brochures, or if you prefer just listening as you walk, consider our youtube tour.
To arrange a tour, call (812) 856-GOIU or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
