About Lake Campus

Wright State University’s Lake Campus, located on 211 scenic acres on the north shore of beautiful Grand Lake St. Marys between Celina and St. Marys, is an excellent option. 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 1,200 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

Although the Lake Campus has historically been a commuter campus, residence housing is now available.  The Lake Campus Housing Villas, townhouse-style apartments with the capacity to house approximately 60 students, opened in late 2011. Information, including amenities and the housing application, is available at

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 for new science labs and James F. Dicke Hall, a multipurpose facility that will help enhance the quality of student and community life by providing recreation, meeting and study space. 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 that will provide support for future growth.
