CCM-specific updates regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

On Aug. 24 CCM welcomed back students, faculty and staff for the official start of Fall Semester.

A carefully crafted blend of in-person and virtual offerings, in addition to enhanced health and safety measures, is providing our students with the best collegiate experience possible in this new era of living and learning. Some CCM areas will continue to operate remotely to facilitate social distancing.

Return to Campus


The University of Cincinnati recognizes the health and safety benefits of implementing a multi-phased return to campus in advance of the start of the fall semester on August 24. Each of the four phases of this stepwise approach is underpinned by a set of essential health and safety measures. All members of our community are expected to do their part to ensure the health and safety of themselves and others.

CCM is also providing regular updates through this website and through our email newsletter. Subscribe to get the latest CCM news, performance videos and other campus updates delivered directly to your inbox.
