Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience: Office of Student Life

Standard Housing Rates

All fees shown in the reselection system reflect current year room and board rates for your planning purposes.  Rates undergo a comprehensive review and are subject to approval by The Ohio State University Board of Trustees.

Students should check their University Statement of Account before each session begins. Students are responsible for understanding the fee structures and obligations and for sharing fee information with others, such as parents and/or guardians, who may be paying fees on their behalf. Fees are due at the same time as tuition:

  • Fall Semester: August 18, 2020
  • Spring Semester: January 4, 2021

Please note students are the owner of their Ohio State account and must authorize permission ahead of time, by completing a Student Information Release, before Ohio State can communicate with parents/guardians or others regarding any financial account matters. 

Ohio State offers a broad range of housing and dining options to meet each student’s individual interests and needs.

Students living on campus should expect the following fees:

  • Room rate (based on residence hall assignment and your cohort under the Ohio State Tuition Guarantee)*
  • Dining Plan (based on the plan you select and your cohort under the Ohio State Tuition Guarantee). See the Student Life Dining Services website.
  • Hall Council Program ($20/semester)

*Standard housing rates are established and approved by The Ohio State University Board of Trustees based on building amenities, facility renovations, air conditioning, bathroom configuration and room occupancy.

Housing Rates for TG21 Cohort

Housing rates are associated with each cohort in the Ohio State Tuition Guarantee. If you are an in-state student eligible for the Tuition Guarantee, housing rates will remain consistent for four years. The cost of each plan will vary depending on your residency and the academic year you enter Ohio State.

The housing rates on this page are for students in the Tuition Guarantee for the 2020-2021 cohort (TG21).

The room and board rates for autumn semester 2020 have been adjusted based on the revised academic calendar. These rates are valid for autumn semester 2020 only. Check back regularly for information and costs for spring semester 2021 room and board rates.

Please login to see the rates for your cohort.

For more information on the Guarantee, see Ohio State Tuition Guarantee, Frequently Asked Questions page or BuckeyeLink.
