OST Buchs Campus is located on the site of the former NTB Interstate University of Applied Sciences Buchs. On September 1, 2020, the universities of applied sciences FHS St. Gallen, HSR Rapperswil and NTB Buchs joined their strengths to form the Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences (OST).

A lot has changed since then, but one thing has stayed constant: dedicated lecturers continue to teach at Buchs in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere.  An open door policy ensures they always have an open ear for the concerns of their students.
