Located on the west side of campus and next to the Marketplace West dining area, West Hall is one of the most desirable living spaces on campus, offering residents suite-style living with moveable furniture, high-speed internet and cable in every room, study and break lounges on each floor, and a large kitchen facility. As the home to many of the university’s most engaged and active students, the West community is a stimulating social and intellectual environment that will serve as a touchstone throughout your years at OSU.
Honors students have priority in selecting a room in West, and we anticipate the Hall reaching capacity quickly. In order to have the best chance at reserving a room in West, please carefully read and follow the procedures below.
1. Apply for housing now on the University Housing and Dining Services website.
2. On your housing application, indicate that you have applied to be a member of the University Honors College within the Roommate Matching Network™. Once you have submitted your application, you will be able to return to the roommate search to see other applicant profiles to find potential roommates.
3. After March 31, 2013 there will be a search feature available to see those applicants who have also been admitted into the Honors College. Only students who have been admitted to the UHC will be able to confirm a room in West Hall, so it is important that you find a roommate who has also been admitted to the UHC.
4. Room selection begins on May 20, 2013. UHC students will have first priority to select rooms during the room selection process. We anticipate space filling quickly within West Hall, so you are encouraged to reserve a room as soon as you can.
Note: If you select a roommate who was not admitted to the Honors College or you are unable to secure a room in West Hall, we encourage you to look closely at Cauthorn Hall. The first floor of Cauthorn Hall has also been reserved for our community through the room selection process. Cauthorn is located right next door to West, and UHC students will have full access to Honors facilities and activities in West.
If you do not participate in the room selection process, University Housing & Dining Services will assign you a roommate and a hall based on your application profile. To emphasize, if you do not select a room by the priority placement deadline of June 17, 2013, you will be automatically placed, based on space availability, in a room that may not be in West Hall.
