• Individual Campus Tour FAQs

  • Can I drop in for a campus tour or do I need to schedule it in advance?
    To guarantee that we'll have a SOAR leader onsite available to greet you and show you the sites, we do ask that all campus tours be scheduled at least one week in advance. We recognize that there may be situations where a one-week notice isn't doable. If that's the case, we ask that you please call our SOAR Office directly at 503-491-7701 to schedule the campus tour.

    Do you offer campus tours on the weekends or evenings after 5 p.m.?
    Our campus tour times are currently limited to the weekdays and during regular service hours of the College, as a campus tour tends to be a bit dull when offices are closed and most students and staff aren't present. On occasion, we do host campus visits in the evenings and weekends with special arrangements, but do not currently lead individual campus tours during these times. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    How long does a campus tour take?
    If you want to see all of the sites, we ask that you plan for an hour. If you're short on time, we will honor that and keep it to the length of time you've got available we only ask that you specify that on the Individual Campus Tour Request Form. If you just want to see a specific area, please add that to the form..

    Can my parent(s), sibling(s), relatives, partner, friend, mentor, and/or pet join me on a campus tour?
    Bring along any and all, except for the pet. Sorry, no animals are allowed on campus with the exception of Assistance Animals.

    If driving by car, do I need to get a visitor's parking pass?
    Parking is FREE at MHCC, so no parking pass required! Once you schedule a campus tour, you'll receive an email confirmation that includes parking details.

    Late/Cancellation Policy
