Edwards Hall is a 1,800-seat multi-purpose arena at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio, located on Sandusky Street. It is home to the Wesleyan Battling Bishops swimming and handball teams. It was named for the late John Edwards, who served on the Board of Trustees of the University and was a major benefactor to the university.

In 1985, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places along with the Pfieffer Natatorium.[1]
