Ohio Union

The Ohio Union is the heart of campus life and has served as a gathering place for students, faculty/staff and external groups. With dozens of spaces to choose from, the Ohio Union allows you to give your guests a customized experience for every event, all with complementary WIFI and many built-in audio-visual resources.

The Ohio Union has 34 flexible meeting and event spaces that can accommodate large corporate meetings, fundraising galas, hands-on breakout sessions, conferences and more. A highlight of the Ohio Union is the magnificent Archie M. Griffin Ballroom. Named for Ohio State’s two-time Heisman Trophy winner, the ballroom is one of the largest in Central Ohio with theater style seating for 1,700. Other large spaces include our Performance Hall and outdoor Potter Plaza, U.S. Bank Conference Theatre and Great Hall Meeting Rooms.
