Tobu Ogose Line
Ogose Station is served by the single-track Hachikō Line between Komagawa and Takasaki, and also forms the terminus of the 10.9 km Tobu Ogose Line single-track branch from Sakado. The station lies 8.5 km from the starting point of the Hachikō Line at Komagawa.
The station consists of two island platforms for Tobu and JR East respectively. The JR East platform serves only one track since the removal of the track on platform 1 in April 2013 to allow construction of a passenger lift. An additional storage track is located on the east side of the Tobu platform. The station has a JR Midori no Madoguchi staffed ticket office.
The toilets located on the north end of the Tobu platform were removed in 2013 when the platform was lengthened as part of the work to add lift access to the platforms.

|Tobu Ogose Line|
From 17 March 2012, station numbering was introduced on the Tobu Ogose Line, with Ogose Station becoming "TJ-47".
In 2013, construction work started to add lift access between the platforms and the station entrance. This entailed lifting the track serving platform 1, removal of the toilet block at the north end of the Tobu platform, and lengthening the Tobu platform by one car length to the north.
The passenger figures for the JR East station in previous years (boarding passengers only) are as shown below.
