Students at The Ohio State University at Lima will soon have a new, centralized place on campus to meet, work out, socialize, collaborate and study.
The $5.2 million, 15,000 square foot building will feature a fitness center, grab and go food services, an information commons and collaborative work space, and several multipurpose lounge spaces.
The new building will form the core of a student life experience for the largely commuter student population. While the majority of Ohio State Lima’s students still come from the school’s traditional 10-county region, 46 Ohio counties are now represented on campus. The building will give them a place to study, eat, relax and work collaboratively when they are not in class.
