Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Columbus and Resources

University District

The University District is the area directly surrounding the Ohio State campus. This area is considered to be within walking distance to campus. A large population of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a smaller population of long term residents, live in this area. The University District is made up of apartment buildings, large older homes (often split up into apartments), townhomes and half doubles. There are also a variety of dining establishments, anywhere from fast food to casual sit down restaurants. You will find a great deal of entertainment in the University District including movie theaters, concert venues and much more.
