COVID-19 Update

Interested in touring campus?

In light of the continuing pandemic and our continual effort to provide a safer environment for our guests, students, faculty, and staff, Sam Houston State University will only host virtual campus tours for the month of January. During your virtual tour, which is hosted live by a Sambassador, you will receive the same information that is provided during an on-campus visit. We will provide additional virtual visit options for our guests to accommodate an increase in virtual attendees.
We remain optimistic that we will be able to introduce in-person tours in February, however, the situation will be re-evaluated closer to that time. For the most up-to-date information, please continue to monitor this webpage.

How do virtual tours work?

We currently offer virtual tours each week, which are led live by a SAMbassador tour guide. They will have a live chat available to answer all of your questions, just like they would if you were visiting in person. When you register for an online campus visit, you will receive an email with login details and additional information.

In-Person Tour Options - STARTING IN FEBRUARY

We currently offer limited in-person tours, which allow for the student and a maximum of 1 guest to attend. Currently, children under 14 are not allowed on tour.

We understand that limited campus visits may not be ideal at the time as you are embarking on your college search, but we are working hard to make campus accessible to you while still abiding by all CDC and University safety measures. We also encourage you to explore our website for more information about becoming a Bearkat!


Email and thank you again for your patience and understanding as we continue to focus on our students’ health and safety.
