Planning a Visit

Visit the department

All potential applicants and all students applying to the programs in the Department of Architecture + Interior Design are strongly encouraged to visit the campus and the Department. Face-to-face meetings with faculty and students allow us to best explain our programs and show our facilities. We spend approximately 90 minutes with each visitor who comes to Alumni Hall on a scheduled visit. Walk in visits cannot always be accommodated but are nonetheless welcome. Likewise, weekend visits to the department are difficult to accommodate but can be arranged.

Department visits are typically scheduled at 11:00 am or at 1:00 pm. Depending on faculty schedules, different times can be accommodated. To schedule a visit for undergraduate programs, contact the office at (513) 529-7210 or, or to schedule a visit for graduate programs, contact Coni Biggs at (513) 529-7026 or

Visit the campus

We also recommend that high school and off-campus transfer students participate in a university orientation session. These sessions are held at 10:00 and 2:00 daily and typically run for about two hours.
