Health and Physical Education Center

The Health and Physical Education Center is arguably the finest athletic, fitness and recreational facility located between Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus, OH. Built in 1997, the 50,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility features many amenities including a 3,500 seat arena, comprehensive community fitness center, classrooms, meeting space, and the exercise physiology laboratory.

The basketball arena is comparable to many Division I facilities and is home to all of the Ohio University Eastern athletic programs. In addition, the facility has become the host site for many area high school activities including the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference girls and boys basketball championships and the Ohio High School Activities Association sectional and district playoffs.

The OUE Fitness Center has remained a core component of the facility since its inception. Open to the student and local communities, the fitness center offers a complete package of strength, resistant training and cardiovascular training for people of all ages in a pleasant, non-threatening atmosphere.


Membership in the Ohio University Eastern Campus Fitness Center is available to members of the campus community and to the general public. Rates are available for individuals and for families. (Rates are subject to change without notice. Check at the Fitness Center for current rates and information.)

The Fitness Center is free for all Ohio University Eastern Campus students.
