Ohio University Eastern comprises two facilities: Shannon Hall and the Health and Physical Education Center.

Wilson Shannon Hall

Shannon Hall, named after Ohio’s first native born governor, Wilson Shannon, is the primary educational facility on the campus. The original design of the Belmont County official seal, created by Ohio U alumnus Michael Massa, is located at the Shannon Hall entrance.

The Health and Physical Education Center (completed in 1997) is an athletic facility located between Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Columbus, Ohio. It serves as a community fitness center as well as the venue of the Exercise Physiology classrooms and labs. The center is the home to OUE’s athletic programs (men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, men’s and women’s cross country, golf) as well as the host to high school playoff contests such as the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference (OVAC) championships and the OHSAA sectional and district finals.
