Just a reminder –

If you are interested in living in on-campus housing, please submit your housing application and pay the housing deposit by Friday, April 13th. This date is earlier than the deadline marketed by the Housing Office so learning community students can receive priority consideration to get into housing.

While students are not obligated to accept the offer of admission from Ohio State Newark or to pay the enrollment deposit prior to May 1st, the opportunity to be included in our learning community does fill up quickly. We encourage you to pay your enrollment deposit as soon as you know you want to join the Buckeye Nation at Ohio State Newark.
