Transfer Students


Transfer Students (2023 H.S. Grads)

Students transfering from another college or university to the Columbus Campus who graduated from high school in 2023 are required to live on campus, contingent upon space availability.  You should contact the Student Life Housing and Residence Education office to request a housing contract.

You'll be able to access your contract online; it is important to fully read the Terms and Conditions of your housing contract, as it is a legally binding document that remains in effect for the entire academic year.  The online contract process includes the following:

  • Electronically sign the Residence Hall Contract
  • Select a dining plan (all residential students are required to have a dining plan)
  • Indicate preferences for area of campus and housing rate, visitation patterns and living-learning community requests
  • Share a little bit about personal habits - if you have a health concern or disability that requires special assignment, please work with Student Life Disability Services
  • Provide vaccination status
  • Pay filing and space reservation fees (If under the age of 18, the signature page will need to be printed, signed and returned with the payment for the filing fee and space reservation fee.)

The contracts are typically due two weeks after the email is sent to you. A confirmation of receipt will be sent to your Ohio State e-mail address. Typically, assignment information will be sent around mid-July (students beginning in autumn semester) or end of December (students beginning in spring semester).


Transfer Students (graduated from High School prior to 2023)

Transfer students who graduated from High School prior to 2023 are not required to live on campus.  We will offer on campus housing based on space availability.  If you are interested in on campus housing please feel free to contact the Housing and Residence Education office at (614) 292-8266.
