OHIO Housing & Residence Life

OHIO Housing & Residence Life We develop inclusive communities where students engage, learn, and thrive. We make OHIO home. OHIOโ€™s beautiful residential campus is a center for academic, social, cultural and recreational activities.

Residential Housing 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. Residential Housing 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.

Hello friends and RAs, for my digital marketing class we have created a blog. If you would click the call-to-action at the bottom of the blog (Download the free E-book) and fill out the form, (it won't sign you up for emails, just one single email from me) it would do wonders for not only me, but also my grade. And who knows, maybe you'll want to try out one of the dorm friendly recipes in the e-book! Thank you so much in advance.
