Located close to the Columbus area just west of Pataskala, COTC provides another full service campus. The Pataskala campus opened its current location in western Licking County in 2010, just five years after the college began offering courses in Pataskala. It is the largest extended campus in terms of enrollment.
A strong partnership with several universities in the area provides convenient ways for students to continue their education.

The Pataskala campus will undergo a $4.2 million renovation in 2020 enabling the COTC to expand academic offerings in the high-demand fields of nursing and information technology, among possible others. The renovated facility's increased capacity will allow more students convenient access to COTC's affordable associate degrees and certificates and help local employers fill demand for skilled workers.
The renovation, scheduled to begin in May 2020 after the completion of the spring 2020 semester, will utilize $3.2 million in state funding and $1 million of COTC reserve funds. During the renovation, COTC will relocate all classes and operations held at the Pataskala campus to its Pataskala Campus Annex (PCA) in the Pataskala City Administration building, 621 W. Broad Street. More information will follow soon.
Phase I of the project will include a complete renovation of 16,000 square feet of the building's interior, creating a new nursing/allied health skills lab, science and computer labs, classroom and academic support spaces, and the installation of new heating, ventilation, air conditioning and fire suppression systems. COTC will resume full operations in the renovated facility at the beginning of summer semester (May) 2021.
