We are thrilled about the opportunity to share our campus with you and help you discover what makes our university so special.

The safety of the Wildcat Community - which includes you, our guests - is our top priority. Prior to your visit, we ask that you review and agree to the guidelines below. This will ensure the safety of all campus visit participants and our staff members. Should you choose not to follow these safety expectations, we will not be able to host your visit in person. 

If you do not feel well, please reschedule your visit.

Travel advisory

On July 20, 2020 the Kentucky Department of Public Health (KDPH) issued a new travel advisory that recommends a 14-day self-quarantine for travelers who went to any of nine states – Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Nevada, South Carolina and Texas – that were reporting a positive coronavirus testing rate close to or greater than 15%, as well as the U.S. Territory of Puerto Rico.

If you are a resident or have traveled to one of these high-risk states or other locations whose positivity rate has now exceeded 15%, we strongly recommend you are tested for COVID-19 prior to your arrival on our campus.
