Ohio University offers plenty of housing for students on and off campus. On campus housing consists of dorms for two students and a meal plan. Off campus housing is either one bedroom apartments or large houses for 3-6 roommates. I looked into housing options and found that living off campus is much easier on the wallet, especially if you don't have your parents paying for everything. Buying food from the grocery store is much cheaper than a meal plan as well. If you don't want to live close to the weekend parties or if you have a significant other who would be waiting for you at home, there are other housing options not affiliated with the university that are affordable as well! They offer single bedroom apartments and even 2-3 bedroom houses at a reasonable cost!
