Virtual Tour Websites

While it is common for schools to feature “virtual tours” on their websites, the sites below enable students to find such tours (and other useful information) in one spot for quick and easy comparison. These sites are useful if a student’s funds are limited, and visiting several colleges is not financially possible. They are not meant to be a substitute for a tour but can still serve as a way to narrow down students’ potential visits to the ones that appeal the most.


CampusTours builds video tours, photorealistic interactive campus maps, mobile walking tours and custom data-driven multimedia applications for higher education. In addition to tours, students will find snapshot information such as admissions contact info, tuition, size, diversity, and athletics. Students can also view schools via mobile device.


The interactive map feature here allows students to browse school choices by state or region.

This site also includes virtual tours from a variety of international colleges and universities.
