Housing & Dining

For the start of the 2022 Spring Semester students may voluntarily choose to return to campus residence halls as scheduled but, for the time being, must participate in required COVID-19 screening testing.

Dining centers will remain open. Meal plans are active beginning Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. UC Food Services will focus on providing the best food and service experience possible, while adhering to health and safety protocols.

Students wishing to return to on-campus housing beginning January 9, 2022 that are currently positive with COVID-19 and/or are currently in isolation or quarantine must complete their Q/I period before returning to campus.


Submit proof of vaccination

  • Fully vaccinated incoming or current students must submit photos (back and front) of their vaccination card via email to uccovidcheck@ucmail.uc.edu or the UC COVID Check app.

  • Once that vaccine documentation is reviewed and verified, you will receive a confirmation email and be exempted from required weekly screening testing.  
  • For additional information regarding UC's vaccine requirment visit the COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement page.

  • Submit your proof of vaccination today! Don’t wait! Proof of vaccination consists of snapshots of your vaccination card (front and back), and you can upload those through email at uccovidcheck@ucmail.uc.edu.

Additional information

  • Quarantine and Isolation: Given that broad access to vaccines is available, on-campus quarantine and isolation housing is on reserve for resident use but may be limited depending on events. Thus, on-campus Q&I housing cannot be guaranteed. All residents should have individual plans for isolation and quarantine housing in the event they are required to do so. Let’s remember that vaccination is currently the best way to prevent the need to quarantine or isolate.
