FAQs

In-person visits are on hold until it's safe to host visitors, but there are still lots of ways to learn about Ohio State.

I'm a high school student interested in Ohio State. Can I schedule for a future visit?

We continue to assess the situation and will make decisions about future visit opportunities based on recommendations from public health officials, university leadership and the State of Ohio.

In the meantime, visit our Will it be you? page for live events and resources created just for prospective students!

Is the Ohio State campus open for self-guided walking tours?

Currently, while the university is under a state of emergency, students and families should not come to campus for a self-guided tour. Your health and safety, as well as that of the community, is the top concern.

As soon is it safe to resume self-guided tours on campus, we’ll update this information. A safer option: take a virtual tour!
