Are you interested in STEP?

Students can indicate their interest in STEP by completing the housing reselection process that takes place February 15th through February 25th.  Students who are eligible for STEP during the 2019-2020 academic year will need to opt-out of STEP during the housing reselection process, should they not want to participate.  Note that all students required to live on campus next year should complete the housing reselection process (including those who will be living with a parent or close relative within 25 miles of campus or those who will be living in an Ohio State sorority or fraternity chapter house that has met the Greek Housing Standard and the Greek Housing Implementation Report).  A formal confirmation process for STEP will occur in March.

Columbus has implemented a new Text-to-911 system

While a call is still preferred, in situations when it is not safe to be on the phone a text option is available.  Text-to-911 works on cell phones, tablets and other devices with the capability of sending texts. If you are a Columbus campus advisor, you can share information with your students about this.  For more information about the new Text-to-911 service, go to www.text911.franklincountyohio.gov.
