The Ohio State University at Lima

Campus Tour: Galvin Hall

Galvin Hall is the most recognizable building on campus. When it was built in 1966, it was the only building, housing everything from classrooms and faculty offices to the library and administrative offices. Today, Galvin is home to numerous classrooms, lecture rooms, faculty offices and student areas. The Phillip A. Heath Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Technology Services on the third floor offer the latest in distance learning, electronic classrooms, technology-enhanced instruction, and student learning. The Writing Center, the language lab and tutors are available in the Phillip A. Heath Center for Teaching and Learning.

Galvin Hall takes its name from John E. Galvin, the philanthropist responsible for Ohio State Lima’s current site.
