The Perry and Sandy Sook Academic Center, located on the north side of Peden Stadium, provides dedicated study and instructional support for more than 425 student athletes and group project collaboration with student peers across campus. 

The facility, whose total project budget of approximately $7 million was funded entirely by Ohio athletics and included a generous lead gift commitment of $2.25 million from Ohio alumni Perry and Sandy Sook, provides a classroom, computer lab, tutor rooms, offices and offices for Academic and Compliance staff members. The Sook Center also enabled Ohio University to provide much-needed ADA restrooms to the Peden Stadium complex.

The construction of the Sook Center began in August 2017 and was completed in late August 2018. The new academic center has doubled the size of the former study space, which was located on the fourth floor of Peden Stadium. On Ohio game days, the academic center transforms into a hospitality area for donors and fans.
