Touring Monterey Peninsula College is a great way for prospective students and their families, schools, and groups to see and learn more about our beautiful campus. Campus tours allow visitors to fully experience our college campus and get a glimpse into campus life. Tours are led by Lobos Ambassadors who showcase the campus while interacting with visitors and sharing their student experiences. There are three options for touring our college campuses: guided tours, self-guided tours, and a virtual tour.
Note: A parking permit is required at all times on the Monterey Peninsula College and the Marina Education Center campuses. Daily parking permits can be purchased for $3 at machines located in student parking lots. Please park in student lots only. See Campus Maps & Directions and Parking Information for more details.
