Campus Visitors

UC is a public university that boasts campuses that are among the most beautiful in the country and especially welcoming to visitors.  

As such, our campus community is committed to assisting all persons who visit any UC locations, whether in Blue Ash, Center Hill, Clermont, Reading, Uptown or Walnut Hills.

During these challenging times, it is recommended that whenever possible, all wishing to visit campus to conduct business first attempt to do so online, by email or by phone.

If conducting business online, by email or by phone is not possible or visiting campus is preferred for other reasons, please be assured that health and safety remains a university priority.

Remember that anyone (including visitors) wishing to enter certain UC facilities (Campus Recreation Center, Tangeman University Center, Libraries, dining halls) will be required to either use the UC COVID Check App or the web-based tool, which includes queries related to symptoms or travel.

Admissions and financial aid

Primary contact with Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid will remain online for one-on-one inquiries and support. Undergraduate Admissions will offer small in-person visit opportunities, some guided and some self-guided, as conditions allow. 

Advising and academic services

The Pathways Advising Center will offer online advising appointments and inquiries and will re-evaluate in September.

One Stop Center

One Stop Student Service Center will continue to operate primarily online. Services are available via phone, email, chat and video chat. A few staff members will be on site in University Pavilion (Uptown Campus), Muntz Hall (Blue Ash Campus), and the Student Services Building (Clermont Campus) for emergencies, staff relief and escalation of requests, though these staff will generally be housed in private offices and not accessible to the public.

West Campus Welcome Desk

The Welcome Desk for Undergraduate Admissions and University Visits also functions as a university-wide information and welcome desk for students, families and other campus visitors. A staff member will be at the desk to answer questions and direct visitors. UC will provide disposable facial coverings for visitors who do not have one. You can also reach out directly to your admissions representative and take advantage of UC’s Virtual Visit

Invited visitors or guests

University-sponsored or invited visitors must be approved by the vice president of the unit sponsoring or inviting the visitors. Contractors of the university must abide by established safety protocols while on campus.

All UC campus visitors are required to review and comply with the following prior to visiting campus:
