Visit Campus

Please specify a contact sheet location.

The Undergraduate Office of Admissions organizes a wide range of visits and events throughout the year. Whether you're from the Tri-State area, out-of-state, or visiting from abroad, we encourage you to see why Cincinnati was named one of the world's most beautiful campuses by Forbes magazine. 

We require that all guests register in advance to attend on-campus visits and events. This allows us to provide space for all attendees, proper amount of staff, and to comply with fire code limits. If a date and time are at capacity, it is best to find a different time to visit or plan to do a self-guided walking tour.

Admissions Events

On-campus events are much larger than a daily visit and offer a more robust experience. The Undergraduate Office of Admissions collaborates with academic colleges, the the Office of New Student Financial Aid, and many other campus offices to provide a full picture of what your Cincinnati experience might be like. Registration for on-campus events is required and becomes available 4-6 weeks prior to the event date. Registration for some events is by invitation only.

Off-campus events include things such as college fairs, visit to high schools, and regional receptions organized by our staff during the spring. To find out when and where we will be, please follow the link and either enter a zip code, select a region, or click the location on the interactive map. 

 

Large Group Visits

This type of experience is intended for college access programs, high school organizations or guidance department initiatives, or other student support organizations that have 10 or more students. The purpose of a large group visit is to provide your students with information about opportunities at Cincinnati and inspire them to explore their college options. The visit begins with a 30-minute presentation given by an admissions counselor that provides information about the application process, academics, experience-based learning, campus life, scholarships and tuition, housing, and much more.
