To the best of our knowledge, the Columbus campus of Ohio State is the largest single campus in the United States. Ohio State is not the largest university -- several others (including City University of New York and Miami-Dade Community College) which have multiple locations in one city are larger. So are others which have multiple locations within a state, such as the University of California and the State University of New York. The list above includes some of the largest universities which are comparable to Ohio State in curricula, mission and organization.
