Newark Campus – LGBTQ students are valued members of the on-campus living community at Ohio State. New, first year incoming students are encouraged to contact the Director of Housing Administration before arriving to Ohio State. In meeting the needs of the incoming student, Student Life University Housing will recognize and respect the gender identity the student has established with Housing.

Staff will not ask for any more information than is required to meet the student’s housing needs, and all disclosed information will be kept strictly confidential. In order to provide support for the needs of current and incoming transgender students, University Housing strongly encourages potential and current residents to contact the Director of Housing Administration, Toni Greenslade-Smith, early in the housing request process so that we may offer the widest range of possible housing options. Students can do this by emailing greenslade-smith.1@osu.edu. [COTC students follow the same steps since Newark Campus housing for COTC students is administered through OSU’s process.]
