Down Time

Being a Buckeye is more than just taking classes at Ohio State. Well-rounded Buckeyes know how to take a break from the books.

There’s so much to do when you become a Buckeye! Get your spin on and more at one of our five recreational facilities. Experience state-of-the-art cardio and weight equipment, computer kiosks, a golf simulator, massage therapy, a sports shop, and an aquatic center at the main facility, the Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC).

See the championship Buckeyes in action. Students can buy season tickets to football, basketball, hockey, and many more of our varsity sporting events. Ohio State has more than 36 varsity teams, so there’s always an opportunity to see Buckeye athletics. “The Schott” hosts Ohio State basketball and hockey, as well as concerts, shows, and other events.

Explore Columbus with discount tickets to restaurants, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Columbus Crew games, galleries, clubs, and more.

So how do you get around campus and around town? Hop on any Campus Area Bus Service (CABS) or Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) city bus. It’s free!

Spend some down time checking out the Ohio Union Activities Board.
