Your home away from home

Leaving the comfort of your own home to move to a foreign country isn't always the easiest. At INTO OSU, our housing team is here to give you a home away from home. In the US, it's typical for a new student to live in the residence halls. It is a great way to make new friends and you can expect a high level of service in our facilities. From simple bedding items to your requested room type, we will ensure you have everything you need.
