Scholars Residence Halls

Honors Tutorial College students are given preference to live in the scholars-only residence hall that is designated for HTC students and students who have earned selective academic scholarships at Ohio University.


Washington Scholars Hall

Located in the heart of beautiful East Green, Washington Hall houses student scholars. Students living in Washington have access to resources, selective staffing, and special programming designed to help them enrich their intellectual, social, and academic horizons. The hall provides a multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural environment for students with high academic standards and a broad range of interests.

Okay, so I’m interested. What are the special features of Washington?

The dorm has all of the standard features available in all OU residence halls [CATVision cable TV service, high-speed ethernet and wireless Internet access, a micro-fridge (refrigerator/freezer and microwave) and a mailbox] in addition to being fully air-conditioned and newly renovated. All rooms include for each resident an extra-long twin size bed, a desk with chair, moveable two-drawer storage cubes, and a wardrobe. Washington is smoke-free and has both study lounges and a large formal lounges as well as new restroom facilities and a kitchen. The student ID provides electronic access to this dorm. Although Washington does not have laundry facilities, Gamertsfelder Hall, located just a minute away, has both washers and dryers. 


What kind of room can I get in Washington?

Washington is a co-ed complex. It can accommodate 239 scholars. Upperclassmen and freshmen are not separated on designated floors. Most rooms are doubles; however, the hall has several triples, and a limited number of single rooms are available.

If I decide to live in Washington, what campus locations would be close?

Located on East Green, Washington is near all central campus locations, such as Ellis, Gordy, Morton, Glidden, and Scripps halls. Campus Care and Chubb Hall are also in proximity. Shively dining hall is located on East Green very near to the Complex.

I already know the person I want as my roommate. Will that choice be honored if I live in Washington?

Your roommate choice will be honored, so long as your designated roommate is eligible to live in the Scholars Hall.
