Fawcett Event Center

Opened on April 23, 1972
In Columbus, Ohio.
Former president Novice G. Fawcett’s commitment to life- long learning and making the university a resource for the people of Ohio was demonstrated by the construction of a building named the Fawcett Center for Tomorrow in honor of his retirement in 1972. Following his retirement, Fawcett continued his close association and positive contributions to Ohio State, maintaining an office in the Fawcett Center for many years.

Today, the Fawcett Event Center continues his mission of learning and offers a complete meeting and conference center, and is the home of the Ohio State Department of Athletics and WOSU stations. His former office is beautifully decorated and furnished, and serves as the Fawcett Library, inviting small groups of up to 12 for executive sessions, working luncheons or private meetings.


Fawcett Event Center is a full-service conference and event facility can accommodate groups of from 5 to 500.
