Street Addresses for GPS
Most Ohio University buildings do not have street addresses. To help GPS systems or various online services provide you with driving directions, you may use any of these addresses, all of which are in Athens, OH, on the Athens campus:

  • 35 Park Place

  • 3 President Street

  • 135 South Green Drive

  • Intersection of Court Street and Union Street

From the North or West through Columbus

If you are driving from the North or West, take I-270 around Columbus, OH, to the Southeast side.

Take US-33 East, Exit 46 B, following US-33 E for approximately 68 miles from I-270 to get to Athens.

Business US-33 goes through the city of Lancaster, encountering numerous traffic lights, but providing access to motels, gasoline filling stations, and restaurants. The Lancaster bypass is now open, and unless you need those services, we do advise that you use the bypass, staying on US-33 instead of taking the Business Route exit as you approach Lancaster. (If you take the Lancaster bypass, it will likely take about one hour to get to Athens from just North of Lancaster.) Continue on US-33 East past Logan and Nelsonville (the Nelsonville bypass is now also open).

After Nelsonville, as you approach Athens, pass the first OH-682 exit (for "The Plains"). If there is a stop sign at the end of the OH-682 off-ramp, you have taken the exit for The Plains, so get back on the highway.

After US-33 E joins US-50 W in Athens, take Exit 17, for OH-682 N. There is a traffic circle ("roundabout") at the end of the off-ramp. Traffic entering the circle must yield to traffic already in the circle:
