Housing and Residence Life 

OHIO’s beautiful residential campus is a center for academic, social, cultural and recreational activities. The Department of Housing and Residence Life strives to engage, motivate and challenge students using our mission, values and goals for guidance. The department is responsible for the administration and programming within a housing system of 42 residence halls across three residential greens that house nearly 8,000 students. We take pride in creating community and cultivating leaders across Ohio University by providing students with not only a safe and comfortable place to live, but also  a thriving and vibrant educational community.

Housing and Residence Life is committed to implementing its seven values: health and safety, scholarship, student development, citizenship, diversity, responsible business practices and staff development in all facets of the residential experience. More information about the mission and values of Housing and Residence Life can be found in the 'department profile' section of this site.
