Ada, Ohio

A small-town atmosphere complements the friendly environment found on campus. Population: 5,947

Student Life

Students choose from a variety of campus activities, including nearly 200 student organizations; four national sororities and six national fraternities; intercollegiate, intramural and club sports; and music and theatrical events.


Location

Our scenic, safe and modern campus rests on nearly 342 acres in the village of Ada, Ohio. Our location provides a small-town atmosphere, yet some of the finest restaurants, shopping and culture the Midwest has to offer are just a short drive away.

ONU Green

ONU is firmly committed to sustainability and environmental awareness on campus. Our on-campus housing derives 30 percent of its heating and cooling from geothermal technology, and three 400-kilowatt wind turbines are expected to provide between 5 and 10 percent of our electricity needs.

Our fleet of hybrid and electric campus vehicles reduces our dependence on fossil fuels, and our many environmentally themed student organizations always find new ways to make ONU a greener place to live, learn and work.

The Inn at Ohio Northern University

Ada’s world-class hotel offers more than 70 deluxe guest rooms, luxurious amenities and more than 3,000 square feet of flexible meeting spaces. Guests of The Inn enjoy everything that the ONU campus has to offer: athletics, performing arts, and so much more.
