Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience: Office of Student Life

Standard Housing Rates

All fees shown in the contract and 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.

Ohio State offers a broad range of housing and dining options so each student can select the best options for their individual preferences and needs.  Fees that apply to living in University Housing include:

  • Room (based upon your residence hall selection/assignment)
  • Dining (based upon the plan you select, outlined on the Dining Services website)
  • Residence Hall Student Government Activity Fee ($20/semester)

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 14, 2018
  • Spring Semester: December 31, 2018
