We hope you are excited about your trip to Wright State University. We are at the center of one of the technological hubs in the state, growing in commerce, research, and artistic endeavors.

Wright State is located 15 minutes east of downtown Dayton, Ohio, approximately 70 miles west of the state capital, Columbus. Cincinnati, Toledo, and Indianapolis are all within an hour or two of driving.

Air transportation is provided by several major airlines to Dayton International Airport, about 25 minutes from campus. Ground transportation to campus from the airport is provided by rental car, taxi, or limousine service.
