Residential Housing video outlines what OHIO students shouldn’t bring to campus

As OHIO Bobcats start packing for fall semester move-in, Ohio University Residential Housing is lending a hand by providing advice on what students should pack as well as what they should leave at home.

The latest video in Residential Housing’s “OHIO 101” web series notes some key items that new and returning Bobcats should avoid bringing to campus with them. Spoiler alert: Hot tubs are not allowed, and, yes, it has been tried.

The “What Not to Bring to OHIO” video comes on the heels of two other “OHIO 101” videos: “What They Wish They Knew before Coming to OHIO” and “How to Set up Your Room”.

Residential Housing launched the web series earlier this month to prepare first-year students for their first move-in experience and to help them plan accordingly. The next video in the series will address information on moving into your residence hall.

Move-in for OHIO’s first-year students will be held Thursday, Aug. 21, and Friday, Aug. 22. Residence halls will open to returning students on Saturday, Aug. 23. Fall semester begins Monday, Aug. 25.
