Pickerington Center

Welcome to Ohio University Pickerington Center!


As an integral part of the Ohio University Lancaster Campus, the Pickerington Center was established to serve the Northwest quadrant of Fairfield County and the greater Columbus area.  Students choose to attend the Pickerington Center for a number of reasons.  Whether you are a recent high school graduate who wants to attend a school close to home or a working adult wanting to complete a degree, the Pickerington Center may be just the place for you!


Students attending the Pickerington Center of the Lancaster Campus can begin their college career with the intent of re-locating to the Lancaster or Athens Campus.  Students may complete a limited number of Associates or Bachelor's degrees without leaving the center.  The center is also host to a number of graduate degree programs. (For specific information concerning graduate programs, contact University Outreach.)  Students attending the Pickerington Center are Lancaster Campus students and can participate in any or all activities, events and athletics at either campus.


Ohio University Pickerington Center is proud to serve this area on behalf of the Lancaster Campus.  Stop in and see us.  We will be happy to talk with you about reaching your educational goals!
