Housing Options in Columbus

Happy New Year, everyone! We have officially made it to 2018! With the New Year, many admitted students and prospective students may have started the housing search for where to live. There are various affordable options near campus or further from campus if you want to commute. The general cost of living for a one bedroom apartment in Columbus can range from $650-$850. There is on-campus graduate housing along, with off-campus living. One popular off-campus location is Fisher Commons which is in the western part of campus (about a mile away– within walking distance and a campus bus route). Most, if not all of MAcc classes will be located at the Fisher College of Business, or more specifically Gerlach Hall. Note that the Fisher College of Business is considered to be “North Campus.”

 

In addition, there are several ways to travel in the city if you do not have a car. Columbus has programs such as Bike Share, Car2Go, Campus Area Bus Service (CABS) and Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA). All students are able to use CABS and COTA free with their Ohio State BuckID card. There are various apartment complexes that offer a shuttle service to the University as part of the monthly rent.

To search for Off-Campus and Commuter Housing options, the University has a direct link with filters to search for what will best benefit you.  Additional university housing options can be found here.

Best of luck with housing! There are many great options available in various neighborhoods.
