Students Living on Campus

Otterbein is your home away from home.

Roommates quickly become friends and pizza parties on Wednesday nights turn into donut runs on Friday nights. Capture the flag, Craft nights, Movie nights, Midnight pancakes and more... Living on campus means you can do more than just attend Otterbein, you can live it!

As a residential campus, Otterbein expects all students to live in campus housing until their senior year unless they are living at home with their parents within a 30 mile radius of campus. Students wishing to commute from home or live off-campus as a senior, are asked to apply each spring semester by February 1st for commuter or off-campus status. To learn more about the residency requirements, please visit page 63 of the Campus Life Handbook (PDF).

Parents and families, we have a special calendar for you along with opportunities to send your students care packages and see the types of information your student is receiving via email.
