New students are encouraged to schedule a visit to Kent State University and the School of Visual Communication Design (VCD) to learn about the campus and our programs.

Parking for visitors is in the Kent Student Center Parking Lot off Summit Street. Tell the parking attendant you are on campus for a college visitation program. See the Campus Map for directions and a map of campus. Occasionally, the School of Communication Studies offers "one-day" permits to visitors but special accommodations are required. Visitors may park at meters located in most parking areas, in the Student Center visitor lot, or by obtaining a $3, "one-day" permit from Parking Services. Rates are posted at each meter and at the Student Center lot.

For general questions about college and school visits, contact Debra Lamm in the Dean's Office of the College of Communication and Information at 330-672-2950 or dlamm@kent.edu.
