UC Center for Field Studies

Located amid thousands of acres of thick forest and streams, the University of Cincinnati Center for Field Studies (UCCFS) and its 17.6 acre parcel of land is one of the university’s most advanced teaching and research facilities. The renovated farm roughly 20 miles northwest of our Uptown Campus blends high-level science with deep-woods know-how through a timeless connection to the great outdoors.
