Welcome to Housing & Residence Life


We specialize in first year housing:

Learning takes place everywhere, and living on campus provides the safety, convenience, support and resources you need to learn about yourself, learn about others, learn about your community, and learn those life lessons that just can’t be taught in the class room.  The Housing & Residence Life team oversee the 5 university residence halls and provide the official on-campus living experience for YSU students.  

What sets us apart from other housing options around campus?

  • A supportive staffing model, including a team of RAs and live-in professional staff
  • A meal plan that provides access to the dining hall, 16 other campus dining options and many off-campus locations to consider
  • Contract terms for the academic year only (no need to find a sub-lease for the summer months)
  • As the official University Housing option, your housing charge will be billed conveniently to your student account and any financial aid (including grants and scholarships) will be applied directly
  • The convenience of being steps away from class, other campus resources and opportunities to become involved on campus.  No need for a car or to spend considerable time driving to campus to search for parking before class!
  • Our maintenance and janitorial teams take care of our buildings daily and work quickly to resolve any issues of concern
  • Our focus on safety and security- card access is required for entry, all halls feature security cameras in public areas and our freshman halls have 24/7 desk staff
  • The community that enhances the overall student experience!  Living on campus provides constant opportunities to make friends and become involved on campus!
