Ohio University requires that all first and second year students reside on campus and participate in a meal plan for two academic years (6 quarters/4 semesters). In most cases this period comprises the freshmen and sophomore years at OHIO. Consideration for housing exemption is given for those relocating students who can demonstrate two full years attending an accredited institution of higher education after high school graduation*. Students wishing to be exempted from university housing and/or meal plan must submit a housing exemption/termination request form for review and approval. A Housing Exemption/Termination Request form may be obtained from the exemption section of our site.
*Credit will not be given for college study completed while attending high school (via advanced placement, House Bill 140, etc.) towards exemption eligibility from the housing requirement.
Please note that completing an exemption form does not automatically exempt the student from housing. The approval process may take up to 4-6 weeks to complete. The student will be notified of his or her exemption status after all documents are reviewed.
To participate in Returning Student Room Selection held each winter for the following fall quarter's housing, submit this online form no later than February 1 to complete a housing contract. Room assignments for winter and spring quarters are completed based on the living preferences identified on the housing contract.
A $200 housing deposit is required and must be submitted with the online housing contract. The deposit is refundable by notifying the Residential Housing office in writing prior to June 1st for fall quarter, December 1st for winter quarter, and March 1st for spring quarter.
