Living on campus offers the perfect atmosphere for making the most of your college experience. By living on campus, you can be fully immersed in campus culture and build lifelong friendships as you dive into college life. You’ll be in the center of it all, with every class and activity on campus just a short walk from your room!

The YSU Office of Housing & Residence Life offers engaging activities and fun events throughout the year that will draw you into campus life, where you can socialize, have fun and learn something new. Their dedicated, enthusiastic staff also offers support and encouragement to all our resident Penguins.

Research shows that students who live on campus obtain higher GPAs and are more involved in activities, and across the nation, residential students are more satisfied overall with their college experience. This can be you!

YSU offers five residence halls, each of which features a unique atmosphere and clean, spacious rooms. There are also five privately managed facilities on campus and downtown, all within walking distance of campus. If this sounds like the right option for you, we encourage you to learn more at web.ysu.edu/housing.

You can get information on university housing and meal plans from the Office of Housing and Residence Life web site.
