Campus Guide Tours

“The spectacular revamp is one of the most significant acts of campus planning since Thomas Jefferson laid out his ‘academical village’ at the University of Virginia … in the early 19th Century.”The Chicago Tribune

“… a must-stop on any mid-American architecture tour.”    — The Boston Globe

Did you know:

  • That the final project completed as part of the University of Cincinnati’s MainStreet corridor has five different functions under one roof?
  • Or, that a cistern that holds rainwater runoff keeps Campus Green, well, green.
  • Or, that some of the major telephone trunk lines for western Cincinnati are on UC’s campus, located under the Campus Recreation Center?
UC Campus Mainstreet

The University of Cincinnati offers customized tours of campus focusing on its distinctive architecture, art and landscape. Upon request, one of 12 volunteer campus guides will take you and your group of four or more on a walking tour to discover more of UC’s transformed campus.  All tours are approximately one hour in length and will follow a general route unless more specified areas are requested.  Groups are to meet at the Russell C. Myers Alumni Center, 2906 Woodside Drive, once the tour time is confirmed.  Please visit for maps and directions to campus. Parking can be found at any of the nearby garages, including Campus Green Garage just across from the Alumni Center.
