Please note: the Ohio State University at Marion does not offer on-campus living. Please be advised this web page is provided as information and referral only. Ohio State Marion is not responsible for student’s choice of off-campus rental properties or their financial rental obligations. Ohio State Marion employees do not inspect, approve, supervise, or maintain any properties for off-campus housing.
The Marion community offers diverse housing options for students in various price ranges and options ranging from studio, 1BR, 2BR, and 3 BR apartments, lofts, home rentals, and more. Some of those options are listed below. We advise students and their family members to take the time to investigate the best option.
For a list of resources and tips, check out our Off-Campus Housing Guide.
If a student is living with other people, it is recommended they complete a roommate agreement. It can set rules and expectations for the living space and prevent conflict later on. A sample template can be found here.
Even students who choose to live at home with family should set rules and expectations, and that can be done through a college living contract found here.
If planning on transitioning to the Columbus campus, students should visit the University Housing site or Off Campus and Commuter Services.
Wherever you chose to live, being closer to campus and near other Ohio State Marion students can be a benefit academically and socially.
