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. Meanwhile, you benefit from having around-the-clock security, free maintenance services and numerous resources nearby. Those latter benefits allow you to focus entirely on life-enhancing pursuits and academics, which may be why students who live on campus traditionally perform better in the classroom than their off-campus peers.

On-Campus Housing Options

We are pleased to be able to offer a variety of living environments such as living-learning communities which places students into housing together into various groups established by the university; apartment-style accommodations for students on the Ashland campus or College of Nursing & Health Sciences Mansfield campus; as well as a variety of room configurations (e.g. single-occupancy, double-occupancy, triple-occupancy) in various types of residence halls.

Each residence hall on campus is staffed with Resident Assistants - student leaders who are active in the hall community and will invest in you and your AU experience. We’re also proud to say that each residence hall on campus has a hall council — a student-run group that plans programs for the hall’s residents and recommends changes and upgrades to the hall’s facilities and policies.
