Small-group, in-person campus tour and information sessions

With priority on safety, we have resumed limited in-person, daily campus tours and information sessions.

Seniors in high school

We welcome high school seniors who have applied for admission, been admitted or have confirmed their enrollment for fall 2021.

Reserve your spot today | Safety guidelines for your visit

 If you are a high school senior but have not applied, please apply first and then sign up to attend an on-campus visit.

High school underclass student

If you are a high school junior, sophomore or freshman, we are excited to showcase our beautiful campus to you in-person once health officials further relax COVID guidelines.

Meanwhile, you are invited to join one of our many virtual information sessions, held several times a week.

Have a question? Reach out to your friendly admissions counselor.

Safety guidelines

  • During these in-person visits, we will be hosting a maximum of 10 guests in each time slot. For each student that signs up, we will only allow one guest.
  • For everyone's safety, facial coverings are required to be worn by all visitors.
  • Campus tours will not include a residence hall tour (we do have excellent 360 videos and more on our Housing website!).
  • Anyone who has COVID symptoms or has come into contact with anyone with COVID in the last 14 days should not visit.
  • At this time, we are able to accommodate visitors only from states that are not on Ohio's travel advisory list.
  • For those who are unable or are uncomfortable coming to campus, we will continue to host virtual information sessions. Sign up for one today.


Please plan to arrive at the Office of Admissions located in Simmons Hall, room 109 for your campus visit no more than 10 minutes before your your scheduled time.

When you arrive at the Admissions Office, you will check in at our front desk. We have installed plexiglass at the front desk for the safety of our visitors and staff. Our staff will check you in and provide you with information about UA.

To better adhere to social distancing guidelines, at this time, tours will be limited to small groups, which may include members of multiple families. All visitors will be required to wear face coverings as well, so we ask you to bring one with you. If you do not have one, one will be provided.

On tour, everyone in the group will wear a face covering and will maintain a six-foot distance. After the tour, employees and visitors will be encouraged to wash their hands.

All information sessions will be conducted by an admissions counselor in a sanitized presentation room. After each information session, we will re-sanitize the room.

We are no longer able to provide refreshments due to COVID-19. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide on-campus dining options at this time; however, you may order take-out from restaurants in the Akron area. Your tour guide will be happy to make recommendations.

No. We encourage you to take time prior to your visit to consider the state of your health and respond appropriately. We are dedicated to the health of our visitors and staff and ask that you refrain from visiting if you are exhibiting symptoms or have been exposed to someone who has been ill. You can cancel your visit through your confirmation email. We will work with you to reschedule once you are feeling healthy again.

At this time, we are not accepting walk-in visits. We are happy to work with you to schedule a visit through our website so we can ensure that all accommodations are in place for a safe and enjoyable visit.
