Be voracious. At OWU, we want you to satisfy every curiosity and feed every yearning to explore—classes, clubs, the arts, sports, and service. This is a fully residential campus, and the OWU experience goes 24/7. Something's always happening at Hamilton-Williams Campus Center, and our residence halls, Greek houses, and SLUs are alive with activity.
Life on campus starts around the fountain on the JAYwalk. That's our "town square," between Beeghly Library and Ham-Wil Campus Center. You'll see virtually everyone here at some point in the day. And be sure to say "hi" to President Rock Jones, and introduce yourself when you see him there at lunch or an event.
The JAYwalk connects OWU's academic core with the residential west side of campus. And twice a year, it's where we all come together for Day on the JAY celebrations—the most popular days of the year at OWU.
New Small Living Units (SLUs) are going up now on the west end of the JAYwalk, and they'll open in fall 2016.

Historic Downtown Delaware is a 5-minute walk from campus. Students regularly head down the hill to coffee shops, a variety of restaurants, shopping, the classic Strand Theatre, Whit’s Frozen Custard, and events like First Friday and Farmers' Market Saturdays. With a population of 38,000 and a thriving economy, Delaware was named one of Ohio’s healthiest cities.
