Visit Chico State

Why Visit?

Chico State is at the heart of a college town rich with history. It has a deep connection to the surrounding land. A creek flows through nearby Bidwell Park and right into the middle of campus.

The warmth and dedication of those who teach, study, and work here is a genuine expression of the joys of the Chico Experience.

Visit—and see for yourself what makes this place so special.


Experience our park-like campus and meet the friendly staff and faculty of Chico State. Schedule a tour.

Download a Self-Guided Walking Tour (PDF) (pdf) or the My Chico State mobile app (iOS and Android) and explore the campus on your own. You can even take a tour of the University Farm.
