The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences owns, operates, and leases nearly 875 facilities across the state of Ohio. The college has a significant presence on the Columbus campus and surrounding community, in the Wooster community, at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London, Ohio, and in each county in Ohio.
Our physical facilities allow us to carry out the administrative, teaching, research, and outreach functions of the college. Our nearly 12,000 acres of land are used as laboratory space for student learning, research for faculty and students, and/or educational programs for communities.
