About Columbus & Campus

Columbus is a fast-growing city that is both the state capital and most populous city in the state.  Columbus has an economy based on diverse industries, including education, banking, logistics, clothes, and technology. 

Franklin's Main Campus is located on 14 acres in the downtown Discovery District, an area home to many arts and education institutions. The Paul J. Otte Center for Student Services, Learning Commons, and Frasch Hall are located on our non-residential campus. Franklin offers students free parking and convenient access to major highways, creating quick access to popular Columbus neighborhoods, such as the Short North arts district, the sports-focused Arena District, Easton - the leading shopping area, and the historical German Village.
