On-Campus Housing Options

Living-Learning Communities

If you’re a first-year student hoping to feel at home as quickly as possible, you may want to look into a room in a living-learning community (LLC), which places students into housing together based on various groups established by the university.

All students living in an LLC still need to complete a housing application at housing.ashland.edu for placement into LLC housing. Some groups also require coordination through a program coordinator, their contact information is included below. 

There are a few LLCs that exist each year regularly:

Honors LLC

This is housing designated for students who are part of the Honors program and is housed in Clayton Hall on designated floors. Interested students should email honorsapps@ashland.edu.

Ashbrook LLC

Students in the Ashbrook program are encouraged to live in Andrews Hall with other Ashbrook Scholars.  Interested students should contact the Ashbrook Program at info@ashbrook.org.


The USA House is a designated house for students with military affiliation. Students interested in this housing option should contact the Office of Veteran Services at veterans@ashland.edu.

Ashland Campus (Senior) Apartments

We offer four-person apartments on the Ashland campus located on Samaritan Avenue. 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.

Apartment Selection

Students select their apartments through 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 full explanation of this process, see the Apartment Agreement, which you can find at housing.ashland.edu under “resources.”

What Residents Say About Living in Ashland Campus Apartments

"The senior apartments are beautiful and well-kept. My roommates and I love to hang out in our spacious living room and cook together in our nice kitchen. The apartments are my favorite place I've lived on campus!"

— Haley

"We love having a cozy space that we can make our own and live comfortably in. Being in an apartment has been a great outlet for allowing us to invite friends over and be together."

— Tonya

"I love living in the senior apartments because the apartment gives me more space, the freedom to cook all of my own meals, more space to entertain, private bathrooms and more privacy. Living here gives me a better sense of independence and the confidence to move out on my own after graduation."

— Molly

College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CONHS) Apartments

If you are a nursing or health science student, you may reside in housing on the main campus or at the Mansfield College of Nursing and Health Sciences campus. Many students choose to spend the first two years on the main campus and then, during their last two years when classes take place on the Mansfield campus, move into CONHS apartments.
