What You Need to Know


Campus Status

The State of Ohio issued a Stay at Home order that began Monday March 23, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Higher education has been designated an essential business. Essential staff are expected to report as scheduled. All others remain in remote work status. Those working remotely are expected to maintain normal business hours.

To support our students and vital campus services, essential staff are continuing to report, and it is important that they take their temperature before leaving home, and if they have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing to stay home. Essential food and building service workers will have their temperature taken upon arrival on campus and need not take it at home.

For all other employees, we strongly encourage you to stay home, if you do intend to come to campus- even for a quick stop, you are required to take your temperature first, and if you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing you may not come to campus.

All classes are being delivered remotely. There are no on-campus classes. Faculty are strongly encouraged to teach from home if possible.

University face to face support services are closed, and have shifted to remote delivery.

Academic and administrative buildings are accessible by card swipe only.

Effective Saturday, March 21 at 5:00 p.m., only students who received permission remain in the residence halls. There will be an appropriate room and board refund for students who have checked out and do not return this semester.

Pulley Diner and The Emporium in the Armstrong Student Center are open for takeout dining for those students that have permission to stay on campus. All other dining halls are closed.

For any in the Miami community or their family and loved ones who have tested positive for the coronavirus, our hearts and thoughts go out to you and we wish you a full and speedy recovery. The Butler County Department of Health works to contact anyone believed to have been in close contact with an infected individual.
