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 into various groups established by the university.  We are currently in the process of reviewing our LLC offerings for 2023/2024.  Please email reslife@ashland.edu if you are interested in an update.  

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 - This is housing designated for students who are part of the Honors program and is housing in Clayton Hall on designated floors.  Upperclassmen Honors students can choose to live in the Honors community too! Interested students should email honorsapps@ashland.edu.
  • Ashbrook - Students in the Ashbrook program are encouraged to live in Andrews Hall with other Ashbrook Scholars.  Interested students should contact the Ashbrook Program.
  • USA House - The USA House is a designated house as part of our Fraternity Circle houses for students with military affiliation.  Students interested in this housing option, who may be eligible, can contact veterans@ashland.edu to see about availability.

Ashland Campus 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 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.”

The following are the apartments available to students this academic year:
