Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience: Office of Student Life

Campus Change Students (2016 H.S. Grads)

Students transfering from a regional campus to the Columbus Campus who graduated from high school in 2016 are required to live on campus.  You should contact the Student Life Housing Services 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 roommates, visitation patterns and learning community requests
  • Share a little bit about personal habits - if you have a health concern or disability that requires special assignment, please include this
  • Provide vaccination information
  • 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 OSU e-mail address. Typically, assignment information will be sent around mid July.
