Confirm your intent to enroll

For students required to live on campus, submission of the housing contract and deposit (or commuter application) confirms your intent to enroll at OHIO. For other students, submission of the final transcript confirms your intent to enroll.

At OHIO, all freshman and transfer students with fewer than four semesters or six quarters in the residence halls after high school graduation are required to live on campus.

Students who meet certain criteria may apply for an exemption to this policy. Students who are not required to live on campus may still apply for housing.

Our beautiful, historic, residential campus provides an environment where students of diverse backgrounds live and learn together, build friendships, and share their ideas and perspectives. More than 8,000 students live in our 42 residence halls and dine in our award-winning campus eateries. Residential Housing provides all the comforts you expect, along with creative programs to enhance the academic, social, cultural, recreational, and service aspects of your life.
