About Lake Campus

Wright State University’s Lake Campus is a regional campus located on 211 scenic acres on the north shore of beautiful Grand Lake St. Marys, between Celina and St. Marys, Ohio. Easily accessible to the residents of Allen, Auglaize, Darke, Mercer, Shelby and Van Wert counties, the Lake Campus enables students to maintain ties to local communities and families. Lake Campus enrollment is approximately 1,500 students.

The Lake Campus offers numerous associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degree programs, plus a variety of general education courses (Wright State CORE) and pre-professional programs. The Lake Campus also participates in the Ohio Transfer Module, which simplifies transferring credits to other universities, and can be found at https://www.transferology.com

Although the Lake Campus has historically been a commuter campus, residence housing is available and continues to expand. The Lake Campus Housing Villas, townhouse-style apartments with a total capacity for housing approximately 96 students, were established in late 2011 with the third building opening in Fall 2017. Information, including amenities and the housing application, is available at https://lake.wright.edu/campus-life/housing

Many Lake Campus students take advantage of the opportunity to be involved in student activities beyond the classroom—both a great resume builder and a chance for new experiences and new friends.

In August 2009, Lake Campus completed a $9 million building project, adding state-of-the-art technology, new science labs and James F. Dicke Hall. In addition, close to 95% of the entire existing buildings were renovated to offer a bright, open educational experience in the classrooms and support areas. In 2015, the Lake Campus and Wright State University launched “Rise. Shine.”, a Capital Campaign to support future growth. The success of this campaign partnered with growing enrollment enabled the Lake Campus to begin construction on the Agriculture and Water Quality Center, set to open in early 2018.
