Residence halls, more commonly called dorms, are a great place to make new friends. OHIO’s residence halls are furnished with basic amenities which include a bed, desk, chair, and closet. Students will share rooms, bathrooms, and public spaces in residence halls. Most dorms are co-ed with men and women living in the same building.
