Campus Life

Our Campus

The Ashtabula campus consists of four buildings: Main Hall, the Library, the Bookstore, and the Robert S. Morrison Health & Science Building (more commonly called the Morrison Building).  Most classes are held in Main Hall and in the Morrison Building.  The Library houses our Tutoring & Testing Services, and library staff are ready to help with your research needs.  The Bookstore sells and rents textbooks and carries specialized supplies needed by health majors along with general supplies and Kent State apparel and gifts.  Admissions, Academic Advising, and Financial Aid are all housed in the Student Services suite in Susan J. Stocker Hall for your convenience.

Student Life

College is a time for meeting new people as well as learning.  At Kent State Ashtabula, there are lots of experiences that let you do both!  The Ashtabula campus is a lively, engaged community with nearly 20 recognized clubs and organizations.  Student organizations offer all sorts of ways to make friends, get some hands-on experience with your major, and get involved.
