The Ohio State University at Newark


Newark Campus Residence Halls


Living on campus is one of the best ways to get the most from your education and to enhance your college experience.

The Newark campus provides on-campus housing to limit the stress of starting college and to create a link between the academic, social, and recreational lives of our students. It is easy to make yourself at home in our residence halls, which offer an independent style of living just steps from class. The hall provides fully furnished kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. Each building is air conditioned and comes complete with laundry facilities.

Your campus residence puts you in the middle of everything happening on the Newark campus. You and your neighbors may decide to take in one of many local attractions or possibly take a surprise spur-of-the-moment road trip. Maybe you'll challenge the students next door to a pick-up basketball game or play in one of the intramural leagues. You could take advantage of the scenic bike path that winds through Newark and is right outside your back door or just enjoy a picnic on a peaceful evening.

Assignments to Newark housing are based on the results of a lottery system. Students should keep in mind that housing information is sent to their OSU e-mail account according to the student's date of admission to the university/college. Students will be required to return a contract, space reservation fee, and a nonrefundable housing filing fee by the end of April to be considered eligible for the on campus housing lottery. Each student will sign his/her own housing contract. All requests received through late April will be entered into a lottery for space and students will be notified of their status prior to the admissions acceptance fee deadline. If selected for a space on campus housing preferences will be honored as availability allows. Students will receive room and roommate information along with a billing statement toward the middle/end of July.
