Academic Facilities



Pull up a chair in our student-centered academic facilities designed to support the way modern students work, study and live. Completed in 2010, the 100,000-square-foot Academic & Research Center is home to Russ College classroom space and additional research labs. Shared with the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, which occupies new state-of-the-art research space, the ARC was designed to encourage the exchange of ideas between the medical, engineering and technology fields.

Walking through the open-design building, you find students collaborating with project teams and faculty in the informal central living room. Civil engineering projects like the concrete canoe reside in the attached two-story project hangar, which features three glass garage doors, a floor hatch, and an industrial crane. Learning studios with modular furniture, project team rooms for study groups and student organization meetings, and pathways with movable upholstered furniture replace traditional classrooms, labs, and student lounges. Look overhead and around the building to see its exposed systems showcasing engineering at work.

Connected next door, Stocker Engineering and Technology Center is home to several Russ College laboratories and administrative offices. Located on Ohio University's historic West Green, the 190,000-square-foot building is named in honor of 1926 electrical engineering alumnus C. Paul and Beth K. Stocker.

The Russ Research Center in Dayton, Ohio,  is a 60-acre high-tech research park where Ohio University provides professional training, and where leading defense, engineering, and technology firms perform research and development.
