Thank you for requesting a visit!
We are excited you are looking to visit the University of Cincinnati College of Law.
Both the University campus and the City of Cincinnati have so much to offer. We encourage you to make time to walk around campus, visit the student center and football stadium (built into the middle of campus), and discover why Forbes once called UC one of the "Most Beautiful College Campuses in the World." Cincinnati, Ohio is booming. Having experienced a recent cultural renaissance, there is much to do and see around town. From the state's oldest indoor/outdoor Marketplace (Findlay Market), to its trendiest neighborhood (Over the Rhine)- which has been noted in Food and Wine Magazine, Politico, and the New York Times for its culinary creativity, arts, and culture- you simply can't go wrong. You can also venture to the other side of downtown Cincinnati, which features the beautiful river-font Smale Park, tucked between the Cincinnati Bengals and Cincinnati Reds' stadiums.
The parking most convenient to the College of Law can be found at the Stratford Heights Parking Garage (preferred), the CCM Parking Garage off Jefferson via Corry Boulevard; or the Clifton Court Garage. USquare (West) Garage on Calhoun is a non-UC garage that is also nearby. You can check LIVE garage availability on the university parking website. (Campus Map PDF)

What can I expect during my visit?
All visits contain a half-hour sit-down with one of our admissions directors. If available, students can also sit-in on a first-year class and take a tour of the law building with a current student ambassador. If you are an admitted student, we also offer opportunities to meet with our Career Services team, faculty, and alumni if available.

If you are unable to use stairs, you can enter the College of Law through the back sliding doors and take the elevator to the second floor.
