The nearest U-Haul location to campus is just a few minutes away. There are a handful of Columbus locations as well. However, if you’d rather opt for a stress-free moving day, then consider using Collegeboxes.

Who To Live With

When you’re new to campus, you may be a bit nervous to make friends. But, this is an essential and life-changing part of college. Everyone will be a tad bit shy in the beginning, but the goal is to open up and meet as many new people as you can. With time, you will be able to develop friendships, and soon enough you’ll be chatting it up with your new best friend in college. Everyone is eager to connect, and if you’re living on campus then it won’t be hard. You can also opt to live in special learning communities where you’ll be paired with others who have similar passions (like nursing, engineering, global business and more), which will make connecting a whole lot easier.

Where To Live

OSU has a large housing department. There are 33 different residence halls that cater to either the younger students, graduate students or family housing. The 33 residence halls are all located on the northern and southern ends of the campus (take a look at the residence halls map).  Looking for specifics of each residence hall, like amenities, description and room sizes?
