Tours at the West Regional Center/Automotive Services Building are available on request and on Ask Admission Days at the West Regional Center (see below).

Check our schedule and reserve your space on a tour. NOTE: There are no tours on July 25 or September 5.

Your visit will include an information session with an admission representative and a general campus tour. A visit to classes in session is not offered. As a community college with a primary mission of serving the residents of Philadelphia, we are a commuter school and do not have student housing.

Group Tours

To arrange a tour for your group of six or more, please contact the College recruiter assigned to your school or organization. If you do not have an assigned recruiter or know who your recruiter is, please contact Diane Kae, Manager of Student Outreach and Recruitment to arrange a tour. Please provide as much information as possible, including name and address of your school or organization, your name, title and phone number, number of people in the group, age or grade level, a brief description of the group, and desired dates and times.
