Newark Campus Residence Hall Housing

Scarlet And Gray Excellence Learning Community students who wish to live in Newark campus residence hall housing with other members of the learning community will receive priority consideration; however, housing cannot be guaranteed. Students must apply to the learning community by April 1st and submit their housing contracts and pay the $350 housing deposit to the Housing Office in Columbus by the priority deadline, Monday, April 13th to receive consideration.

If you are planning to live on-campus and do NOT plan to apply for the learning community, the deadline to submit your housing contract and be included in the housing lottery is April 24th.

Questions regarding Ohio State Newark’s housing lottery should be directed to the Housing Office at https://housing.osu.edu, housing@osu.edu or 614-292-8266.

Due to limited program space, students will not be able to pull in other friends that they would like to room with who are not part of the Scarlet And Gray Excellence Learning Community.


Deadline for priority consideration for learning community housing is Monday, April 13th, which is earlier than the normal housing deadline for OSU. Please submit your housing contract and pay the housing deposit to be considered for priority learning community housing. Priority consideration does not guarantee you will receive housing. Students who are not placed in learning community housing will be able to participate in the general housing lottery.
