    Health and Safety

    Our top priority is the health and safety of our guests and the rest of the Redbird community.

    If you are a fully vaccinated individual (14 days post-final vaccine) you will not be required to wear a mask while on campus. Guests who are not fully vaccinated are asked to maintain six feet of physical distance from others or wear a face covering that adequately covers both nose and mouth for the duration of their visit. All guests should practice proper hand hygiene throughout their time on campus by washing hands or using hand sanitizer.

    If you are feeling ill leading up to your scheduled campus tour, we kindly ask you to reschedule your visit. 

    Visit to learn more about the University's efforts to keep our community healthy.

    Immediately following the presentation will be a 75-minute student-led outdoor walking tour of campus, where you will get to see many of our academic buildings, learn about life as a Redbird, and take in the beauty of our Tree Campus USA-designated Quad.
