Oberlin welcomes visitors to campus! We are excited to open campus to prospective students and their families and will continue to monitor local, state, and national guidelines as our top priority remains the health and safety of our students, staff, and visitors.
We ask that you register in advance of your visit so that we can prepare to safely host you on campus.
The Oberlin community has done a remarkable job adhering to our layered health care strategy and thanks to our collective efforts, Oberlin maintained a COVID-19 test positivity rate of just 0.23% for the 2020-21 academic year. Our campus currently has an 86.9% vaccination rate and we are happy to invite prospective students to visit.
As of Monday, August 2, Oberlin College is requiring that both vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear a mask indoors. We will continue to monitor risk and adjust our visit policies based on public health guidance.
