The Physics Laboratory operates since 2001, within the School of Science & Technology of the Hellenic Open University (HOU). The Physics Laboratory provides high-level education in experimental Physics and conducts basic and applied research to create scientific knowledge. The development of technological solutions and the creation of distance learning methodology in Physics also fall within the scope of the Laboratory.

The Physics Laboratory offers students experimental knowledge  for  three courses of the undergraduate programme “Studies in Natural Sciences”.

The Laboratory has been prepared to provide training and to support the research thesis work of the postgraduate students following “Advanced Studies in Physics” and “High School Teachers Specialization in Natural Science Education” in HOU (

Special educational material and methods have been developed to provide a good laboratory education for non-resident students, in order to compensate for their shorter periods of physical presence. These include notes and guides as well as multimedia products, which utilize distance-learning features for the trainee preparation, thus maximizing the efficiency of the laboratory training.

Until the completion of the HOU Campus (in Glaukos Area, Patras) the Physics Laboratory is accommodated on the 2nd floor of a neoclassical building at Tsamadou 13-15 & Agiou Andreou, in the center of the city of Patras.
