Parc Sigma Sigma - Sigma Sigma Commons

Cette partie entière était autrefois un parking énorme qui a été remplacé par un espace vert idéal pour les rassemblements et les réunions. UC est une université “verte” dont la majorité des parkings ont éte relégués dans des garages à niveaux multiples sités en bordure du campus. Les étudiants d’UC ont le droit d’avoir une voiture, même en première année –moyennant une redevance trimestrielle pour le parking. Le montant de cette redevance dépend de votre choix du parking.

Le Parc Sigma Sigma est une place de rassemblement populaire pour les étudiants et un endroit de spectacles tels que concerts et festivals, y compris le Carnaval Traditionnel Annuel de Sigma Sigma.

Le centre de Recherche des Ingénieurs est le siège des programmes d’ingénieurs pour les étudiants et des laboratoires de recherche. Il a été conçu pat Michael Graves, un des anciens étudiants les plus illustres d’UC, devenu architecte de renommée mondiale.


The upper part of Campus Green is called Sigma Sigma Commons. It is a popular gathering place for students and a site for many campus events throughout the year, like band concerts and festivals, including the annual Sigma Sigma Carnival.

This entire area used to be a huge parking lot, but UC's Master Plan called for more green spaces on campus, so almost all parking has been moved to multi-level garages to make way for spaces like this one. Students at UC are allowed to have cars, even as first year students, and there is a quarterly fee for parking. The exact price depends on which parking facility students choose.

Morgens Hall and Scioto Hall, which contain housing for graduate and non-traditional students and their families, are currently closed for renovation. Turner Hall and Schneider Hall are examples of suite-style housing, where students have a bedroom, common area, and bathroom that are shared only with their fellow suitemates. They offer general student housing, as well as housing opportunities for students in the University Honors Program and for UC athletes.

The Engineering Research Center houses graduate and undergraduate engineering programs and research labs. It was designed by Michael Graves, one of UC’s most distinguished alumni, who has became one of the world’s most important architects.
