Welcome to Ashland University Residence Life
When you live on campus, you’re in the midst of all the action — from in-hall activities to concerts and guest lectures— so, it not only feels easier to take part in those events, it is easier!
You’re also closer to classrooms, facilities such as the Rec Center and most of the students who will become your friends, study partners and support network. You also benefit from having around-the-clock security, free maintenance services and many resources nearby. Those benefits allow you to focus entirely on academics and life-enhancing pursuits.
On-Campus Housing Options for 2022 – 2023
We are pleased to offer a variety of living environments to AU students:
- Living-learning communities for some of our incoming first-year students (aka freshmen)
- Apartment-style accommodations for students with senior status (90+ credit hours complete)
- A variety of room configurations (e.g. single-occupancy, double-occupancy, triple-occupancy) in various residence halls.
We offer four-person apartments on the Ashland campus located on Samaritan Avenue.
There are also four- and five-person apartments on the Mansfield College of Nursing and Health Sciences campus that are available to students who are studying at that location.
If you live in an apartment, you may still select any meal plan, but if you have senior status (90+ credit hours) you may opt out of having a meal plan.
Students participate in an apartment lottery in the spring prior to the academic year in which they plan to reside there. The selection order for the apartment lottery is determined by a point-system based on GPA, credit hours and student conduct history. The apartment applications with the highest scores receive earlier lottery times, followed by those with lower scores in descending order.
For a fuller explanation of this process, see the Apartment Agreement, which you can find at housing.ashland.edu under “resources.”
