We look for Michigan students who want to channel their passion and excitement about U-M to prospective students and parents interested in joining the Wolverine family. Serving as the public face of the University of Michigan, our guides represent a wide range of academic and extracurricular interests. Whether you are an English major, engineer, or dancer, we’d love to have you on our team!

The Tour Guide contract is for one full school year. Our tour schedule corresponds to the university's admissions calendar, so each month varies in the amount of tours given. On average, Tour Guides are required to be available for at least two tours per week.

Welcoming nearly 45,000 visitors each year, Tour Guides are representatives of the student body and the global Michigan community. Oftentimes, they are the first introduction students and families have to Michigan.

Meeting students as they prepare for college, sharing all that has made Michigan unique for you, and working with other student leaders on campus make being a Tour Guide a truly exceptional opportunity. This is a paid position.
