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.

Admissions and financial aid

Primary contact with Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid will remain online for advising, events and virtual tours. The office will provide information for self-guided tours with physical distancing guidelines.

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. Up to two additional staff will be available for staff relief and escalated cases. 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 until campus visits resume.

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:

Reporting requirements for visitors

All visitors returning from international travel must complete a self-quarantine of 10 days prior to entering any university facility or attending any event or meeting on campus. Additionally, all visitors traveling from any foreign country should register with University Health Services prior to entering any university facility or attending any event or meeting on campus.

Finally, any campus visitors meeting the following criteria should also report via the UC COVID Check app. UC's COVID Check app is free and easy to use. It can be downloaded through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. A web-based REDCap survey is also available as an alternative to using the app.
