Explore our campus.

Come visit us!

Visiting Governors State University is the best way to find out what sets us apart from other universities. You can get to know GovState with a GovState Student Ambassador or fellow GovState Student. During the campus visit you will: 

  • Take a tour of our campus.
  • Inquire about departments and programs that interest you.
  • Learn about student services the university offers you.
  • Learn about degree programs.

Campus tours are walking tours provided by a GovState Student Ambassador or a GovState Student. On your tour, you can visit various departments and campus resources, and you will see why students choose to become GovState Jaguars! Individual Campus Tours are provided for individuals or small groups of less than 10 people. You must schedule a visit using the link above, as we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate walk-ins.
