Parents & Families

The Office of the Dean of Students, in collaboration with University departments and offices, seeks to partner with parents and families to provide timely, helpful information to aid in the academic, social and holistic success of Ohio University students. To accomplish this mission the Office of the Dean of Students seeks to effectively communicate with parents and families, help parents and families understand and navigate the Ohio University landscape, provide advocacy for parents and families, and provide on-campus activites for family weekends.

Moving into the Residence Halls


Information for Fall Semester Move In 2016


First-year students should plan to arrive in Athens no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 19. All first-year students living on campus will then attend a Residence Hall Welcome at 6PM in their hall. Information regarding this welcome event on Friday will be found once the student has moved into their residence hall.

For general questions or directions on campus, Ohio University staff will be located on each of the greens (West, East, and South). Each car arriving will be allowed to park adjacent to the residence hall for thirty minutes to unload. Ohio University staff will be able to direct you to long term parking areas once you have unloaded your vehicle.

Individuals with disabilities or who require special assistance must request help in advance of arrival by calling Residential Housing at 740-593-4090.

A link to the Housingand Residence Life Move In website with interactive maps of each green can be found online here.
