Schedule a Visit

At Kent State University, we are committed to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff. We understand there are concerns surrounding the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) and attending public events. 

Out of an abundance of caution we are canceling our on-campus events for the remainder of Spring semester. 



The School of Information invites prospective students, researchers, community members and partners to schedule a visit to our location on the third floor of the University Library at the Kent Campus of Kent State University at a later date, when campus activities resume.

To schedule a visit, please contact the appropriate location and let us know what you'd like to see and whom you'd like to meet. We'll do our best to set up a tour of the facilities that match your particular interests, either during our normal office hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday) or at another time by special arrangement. 

To visit the Kent Campus:
