  • Gender Inclusive Housing Gender Inclusive Housing is available for continuing groups of undergraduate and graduate residents in the Gateway apartment style living area. This option meets the needs of all of our continuing residents, inclusive of all sexes, genders, gender identities and expressions. It means that for continuing residents, women, men, and people of all gender identities and expressions can live together.

    Transgender students are valued members of the on-campus living community at Ohio State. New, first year incoming students are encouraged to contact the Director of Housing Administration before arriving to Ohio State. In meeting the needs of the incoming student, Student Life University Housing will recognize and respect the gender identity the student has established with Housing.

    Staff will not ask for any more information than is required to meet the student’s housing needs, and all disclosed information will be kept strictly confidential. In order to provide support for the needs of current and incoming transgender students, University Housing strongly encourages potential and current residents to contact the Director of Housing Administration, Toni Greenslade-Smith, early in the housing request process so that we may offer the widest range of possible housing options. Students can do this by emailing greenslade-smith.1@osu.edu.

  • Honors Housing Honors Housing works collaboratively with the Hon­ors & Scholars to create a holistic “Honors experience.”  Students, through active involvement, are encouraged to develop lead­ership, social and cultural skills to complement the learning objectives of their Honors curriculum.
