Scheduling your visit
Submit your requested visit dates (first and second choice) at least 3 weeks in advance via the Meadows Group Visit Form. Due to space and availability limitations, some Group Visit requests may not be possible. The Group Visit is not finalized until you receive email confirmation from the Meadows Admission Office.
Please note that once detailed arrangements are made, change requests are strongly discouraged and are not guaranteed.
Lunch on Campus
SMU Meadows Admission Office cannot provide lunch coordination for Meadows Group Visits. Student groups can arrange to buy lunch on campus by contacting SMU Dining Services at 214-768-2336 in advance of their visit. Or, students are welcome to bring sack lunches, but lunches and coolers must be left on the bus. There is not a designated interior lunch space for visiting groups. We encourage you to enjoy the beautiful grassy boulevard and picnic outdoors.
Buses require parking permits from SMU and must register at least two weeks in advance. Fill out the Campus Bus Visit request form here.
If members of your group require accommodations for a physical disability or will require physical assistance during a walking tour at SMU Meadows School of the Arts, or if you have any other special needs, please contact us a day or two before your visit at 214-768-3217.
