Parents & Families: Housing & Residence Life updates

2019-20 Returning Student Room Selection

Students who complete the housing contract by February 20 are able to participate in the Returning Student Room Selection process for the 2019-20 Academic Year. Detailed information can be found at here

Housing & Residence Life will have extended hours of operation during the Returning Student Room Selection (8 a.m.- 8 p.m. from March 25-29) to help answer questions and provide support to students. Information related to the Room Selection process will also be posted on our Facebook page and twitter feed (@OhioU_Housing) and sent to students’ OHIO email addresses.

Spring 2019 Semester Closing Reminder

Spring semester checkout will be here soon, so it is important to start planning. The residence halls close on Friday, May 3 at 8 p.m. Residents are encouraged to move out within 24 hours of their last exam (but no later than 8 p.m.). This helps ensure students who have completed exams are not distracting students who are still studying. Convocation Center residents and residents of South Green are highly encouraged to check out of the residence halls prior to Friday due security details and traffic congestion created during the Friday commencement ceremonies. A Spring Closing Extension Application will be available April 1 at www.ohio.edu/myhousing for any student who need a one-night extension until May 4 at 6 p.m. 

Summer 2019 Semester Housing Information

For those parents who have students attending summer school, the summer school housing application is live!  Summer school housing will be located in Jefferson Hall on East Green.

Fall 2019 Housing Updates

If students are looking for a new space for the 2019-20 Academic Year, the Room Change Process begins on April 16 and lasts until August 1. Students can view all available spaces at www.ohio.edu/myhousing. If any students are not planning on attending Ohio University next year, an email should be submitted to housing@ohio.edu before May 1 to indicate that they are withdrawing.
