Located in the heart of the Miami Valley, adjacent to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Wright State University is right here in your backyard. Over the last 50 years, Wright State has evolved from a small branch campus of Ohio State and Miami universities into today’s powerful economic engine, with more than 111,000 alumni around the world.

Wright State offers you exceptional, affordable education.

Our undergraduate tuition is among the lowest for Ohio four-year universities. The Wright Guarantee program guarantees the same annual cost of in-state tuition, housing, and meal plans over a four-year college career if you are a new, incoming, degree-seeking undergraduate student. A 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio speaks to the level of individual attention available. Our Dayton campus includes tunnels that connect 20 of the 22 academic buildings, shielding you from adverse weather and adding to the university’s national reputation for accessibility for those with disabilities.

Enjoy campus life that includes music concerts, theater performances, outdoor recreation, NCAA Division I athletics, club sports, more than 150 student organizations, Greek life, and many opportunities for leadership and service.

Find your passion, find your people, find your future. Right Here. Right Now. Wright State.
