Drop-in tour days

January Drop-in Tour Day

Our next January Drop-in Tour Day will be in 2021.  

March Break Drop-in Tour Day

During your tour, a student tour guide will take you around our beautiful north Oshawa campus location so you can see the buildings, classrooms, student residences, and many student services. Your tour guide will answer all your questions about programs and facilities, and what it’s like to be a student at Ontario Tech. Admissions, and Student Awards and Financial Aid will also be around for you to ask related questions.

Registration for March Break Drop-in Tour Day will open in early February 2020.

Please visit our general campus tours webpage to book a tour date and time that works with your schedule.  



Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • I registered - what happens now?

    You'll receive a confirmation email shortly after registering for your tour. Your tour guide will also follow up by email within 48 hours of receiving your request. If you haven't heard from your tour guide after that point, please check your junk mail folder in case the email ended up there. If you still have not received an email, contact and indicate:

    • first and last name
    • date and time booked
    • number of guests
  • Where will the tour start?
    You'll begin your tour at our Software and Informatics Research Centre (SIRC) (40 Conlin Rd West). Please visit our website for detailed driving directions.
  • How long are campus tours?
    Campus tours are typically 1.5 hours in length.
  • Are faculty-specific facilities (labs etc.) included in the tour?

    Unfortunately, no.  While we do our best to accommodate individual interests, campus tours are designed for prospective students looking at any of our programs. In addition, labs are not available for campus tours due to health and safety requirements and the scheduling of lab space for current students, faculty members, and researchers.

    The best opportunity to tour faculty-specific facilities is at our Open House. Please visit our Open House website for more details. You can also visit our virtual tour to view faculty-specific facilities.
