Off-Campus Living Expo

The Off-Campus Living Expo serves as a fun and interactive event for Ohio State students, parents, faculty and staff to gather information about off-campus living and safety. This event incorporates available rental properties, transportation, fire and home safety, student involvement opportunities, and more. We encourage all students to attend the Off-Campus Living Expo as they are navigating their housing search and before making a final decision on where to live. 

The expo will be held on Friday, October 22 from 11 a.m. — 5 p.m. in the Ohio Union Performance Hall. 

This year's expo coincides with Parent and Family Weekend so that parents and families can also learn about the off-campus area and become better equipped to support their students. 

The Off-Campus Living Expo is also a great opportunity for local partners to collaborate with Ohio State to reach students, parents, faculty and staff while highlighting the many off-campus living resources. If you are a property owner or other University District entity, and if you are interested in attending, sponsoring or donating to Willie J. Young Sr. Off-Campus and Commuter Student Engagement's initiatives and events, please contact us either via email at or phone at 614-292-0100.
