Located on West Campus inside the Adventure Recreation Center (ARC), the OAC boasts a 35’ tall climbing wall, bouldering area, and other specialized training equipment. No climbing experience is necessary, and all equipment is provided at no charge for Recreational Sports members. More information on the climbing center can be found on the OAC Guidelines Page. The OAC also includes a reservable conference room that seats up to 20 people- groups can combine a work meeting with a climbing session through a space reservation.

The OAC provides educational opportunities for the Ohio State community to engage in outdoor recreation through its trips and clinics program. Learn more about Outdoor Adventure Trips here or view upcoming Clinic and Event offerings here!

Further, the OAC rental program has a full array of outdoor adventure equipment to serve your outdoor pursuit needs, from coolers and canopies to tents and kayaks. More details can be found on the Equipment Rentals page.

The OAC also aims to provide resources for local adventure, please see our Outdoor DIY Page.

The ARC/OAC has plentiful bike and car parking and can be accessed via the Blankenship Hall CABS stop via the Campus Connector (CC) bus loop.
