Área Sigma Sigma - Sigma Sigma Commons

Esta área era en su totalidad un inmenso estacionamiento; pero ahora es un gran espacio verde para reuniones y eventos. La UC es un campo verde, dado que la mayor parte de las áreas de estacionamiento han sido llevadas a garajes de varios pisos en torno al borde exterior del campus. Los estudiantes de la UC, incluyendo a los de primer año, pueden tener su automóvil. Se les cobra una tarifa trimestral por el estacionamiento, que varía según el lugar que hayan elegido.

El Área Sigma Sigma es un lugar popular de reunión para los estudiantes, donde se celebran muchos de los eventos del campus, tales como conciertos y festivales, incluyendo el tradicional Carnaval Sigma Sigma anual.

El Centro de Investigaciones de Ingeniería es la sede de programas de ingeniería para estudiantes de pregrado y postgrado así como laboratorios de investigación. Fue diseñado por Michael Graves, uno de los ex alumnos más distinguidos de la UC, quien se convirtió en uno de los arquitectos más importantes del mundo.


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.
