Wilmington College’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to place the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff as of paramount importance. The College’s COVID-19 Response Team and the Safety & Emergency Committee have been meeting weekly to keep abreast of the ever-changing information, guidelines and regulations from the Center for Disease Control, Ohio Department of Health, Department of Education, Governor DeWine’s office, the Clinton County Health Department and our campus medical experts (physician, nurses, athletic trainers) to ensure the safe return to campus for all. Also, three sub-committees of the Safety and Emergency Committee are addressing the critical areas of housing, dining services and the return to the classroom and intercollegiate athletics.
The College’s goal is to provide safe housing and residential space for its students. Numerous options are available, from single room occupancy and allowing students to “opt-In” to multiple occupancy rooms, to allowing students to commute from home or an off-campus residence during this academic year. As a result of the pandemic, WC has partnered with its dining services provider, Sodexo, an international corporation, to implement changes designed to ensure a safe dining experience while continuing to provide exceptional service to the College community. These changes meet or exceed safety requirements and/or recommendations related to the COVID-19 pandemic set forth by the Ohio Department of Health.
Additional steps are being planned in preparation for the return of students to campus this fall. Class options will include face-to-face, hybrid traditional, hybrid flex, online synchronous and online asynchronous classes. The College will adhere to guidelines determined by the NCAA and Ohio Athletic Conference in bringing student-athletes to campus and staging intercollegiate athletics this year. Comprehensive information on the start of school this fall is available in the links featured below.
The main campus reopened for staff to return to work on June 8. Main campus summer classes are all online. Students may access the library and other student resources electronically. Please be aware that access to any campus building is currently limited to employees. Students and guests can access certain buildings by appointment.

The Wilmington College Cincinnati office is only open virtually at this time, not physically. All branch faculty and staff are working remotely. On Monday, August 31, Cincinnati State discovered a major water line break in the Main Building of its Clifton campus. Our office and classrooms are located in the Main Building. While our physical space did not experience water damage, access to the buildings is restricted and services such as water and electricity have been shut down as well. We are hoping to return to our office soon, but that doesn’t stop us from being available via phone or email! Please contact us at 513.569.4580 or 513.569.1806. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are asking for you to contact your supervisor if you exhibit any flu-like symptoms while you are away from campus. It’s important for us to know if you are ill so we can plan for your return and make certain that everyone is safe.
