Off Campus Living

The Community Engagement Programs staff within Off Campus Living assists students who live off campus by serving as as a resource for navigating their transition from on-campus living to off campus life often for the very first time.  In order for OHIO students to successfully acclimate to the wider community an understanding of community standards is necessary such as city policies, trash & recycling protocols, off campus safe party host information just to name a few. Please stop by our office anytime to ask for help.
