Ohio Wesleyan University's goal is to offer the most positive experience to all visitors on our campus while maintaining a safe living, learning, and working environment for our students, faculty, and staff.

As a campus, we are excited to welcome you to OWU. For the past 15 months, we have looked to the Centers for Disease Control, local and state public health officials, and the science community for guidance in establishing protocols to help keep our community and visitors safe. Now, we will continue to follow their lead with the following updates to our campus visit policy.

Admission & Financial Aid Visitors

We are thrilled to welcome prospective families to our campus for a chance to see, in person, the community our students call home. Students interested in OWU and their families will join our staff and student tour guides to learn about the University and the admission and financial aid process. All visitors are required to review OWU's Admission Visit Guidelines to know what to expect during an on-campus experience.

  • Daily campus tours are offered Monday-Friday at set times for up to eight families. 

  • Visit day opportunities allow families to tour campus and attend information sessions.

  • Virtual offerings continue in 2021, providing convenient ways to learn about OWU with Admission staff, faculty, and students.

Guidelines for All Visitors

OWU values our relationship with, and the safety of, our visiting families, business partners, alumni, families, and friends. 

  • Fully vaccinated individuals (two weeks after final vaccination) are not required to wear face masks or to practice physical distancing while outdoors or indoors on campus. 
  • Fully vaccinated individuals are encouraged to do what they are most comfortable with regarding their own mask usage.
  • Unvaccinated individuals must continue to wear face masks covering the nose and mouth and practice appropriate physical distancing while inside (unless they are alone in an enclosed office). 
  • Physical distancing and masks are not required outdoors for visitors and guests.

As always, we will continue to monitor recommendations and conditions regarding our campus policies and visitor guidelines and share updates as they occur.
