The Ohio State University at Lima


Ohio State Lima Coronavirus Information and Updates

Keeping our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends safe is our top priority. We realize that this is a challenging time, but our strength has been and always will be people. The coronavirus is unlike anything we have seen, but we remain committed to providing our students a quality education. The Ohio State Lima campus remains open and focused on supporting student learning. We aim to maintain “business as usual” as much as possible with safety adjustments, while serving students and our communities.

Below are the latest updates on our efforts to keep our Buckeye family safe. This is an unprecedented situation that is evolving on a daily basis. We appreciate your patience and will continue to update this page regularly with information that is specific to the Lima campus. Information on all the ways Ohio State is taking steps to keep our communities safe is found here.
