Residence life at Ohio University

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Residence life at Ohio University revolves around four campus greens, or community areas that house resident students and staff. The university mandates that all first- and second-year students live on campus in the greens. It also facilitates programs based on the five university-recognized pillars of the student honor code, and incorporates these into its Residential Housing department.[1]

Residence life on the Athens campus is encapsulated by the experience of living in dormitories mostly built in the mid-1930s and 1940s. The neo-Federalist architecture of university buildings dominates the southeast Ohio landscape and integrates with the ecology of Ohio University.[2]
