Oberlin has arranged for private shuttle services for students to and from campus to the airport and to local venues. These services are offered throughout the academic year, especially weekdays, select weekends, and during academic breaks.

To our prospective students and families:
We understand how important the college search is to you. We love introducing Oberlin to future Obies and for many families that means visiting our campus. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the emphasis on the safety of our community, we have suspended all admission-related campus visits until further notice. This includes daily campus tours, information sessions, and any event for admitted students.
