Ohio State has three Honors residence halls, one on each residential area of campus. Students who are accepted into the Honors Program may request Honors Housing on their Residence Hall Contract. Honors Housing is not guaranteed, assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis depending upon the date that Admissions receives the $100 university acceptance fee and the date that University Housing receives the completed Residence Hall Contract along with the $250 housing deposit. University Housing has detailed information about each of these residence halls, including amenities, room dimensions and residence hall staff available on their website.
Taylor Tower is designed as a quad where four students share a bedroom, a common room, and a bathroom within the room.
Bradley Hall typically houses students in 2-person rooms; however, some are assigned to triples and quads.
Lincoln House features 8 and 10 person suites with a common area, a bathroom and four bedrooms. Most students living in Lincoln House reside in doubles; however, some live in quads.
Honors students must take the following steps to be assigned to an Honors hall:
Apply to OSU for autumn admission via the Common Application at commonapp.org.
Complete the OSU supplement.
On the OSU supplement, indicate if you want to be considered for admission to the Honors Program (check the box – yes or no).
If you are admitted, accept your Honors Program designation online using your OSU ID no later than May 1.
Pay the $100 university acceptance fee no later than May 1.
Specify your Honors Housing interests on your Residence Hall Contract then submit the completed contract and the $250 housing deposit to University Housing by their deadline (usually June 1).
