The Ohio State University at Mansfield was created through a partnership between Mansfield area citizens and the State of Ohio. In the early 1960s, the Ohio Board of Regents designated Mansfield as a site for an OSU regional campus. Soon after, local citizens mounted a major campaign to acquire 640 beautifully wooded acres for a campus site. Buildings began to be constructed, and the campus opened for classes in October of 1966.
The campus offers the many resources and opportunities that you expect from Ohio State. Attending our regional campus is like attending a small liberal arts college with the resources of a major university.
Students enjoy small classes and low tuition compared to other institutions in the state university system. Best of all, a degree from Ohio State is respected and recognized around the world.
The addition of student housing in recent years has permitted the campus to become a more residential-style college. Living in university housing offers many advantages and has been proven to enhance student success at Ohio State.
In an effort to help students, the campus dedicates considerable resources to support services to assist students in achieving their academic goals.
