Planning to Commute?
Traditional aged, first-year students who plan to commute are asked to complete a Parent-Close Relative Exemption form. This form ensures that students are living with a designated, approved relative within 25 miles of the Ohio State ATI campus. Paper forms may be obtained in the Ohio State ATI Office of Admission, the Applewood Village front desk, or at summer orientation. Completed forms should be notarized and scanned to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed via USPS to:

To aid you in this off-campus search, we have created The Off-Campus Living Guide.
Transitioning to Columbus?
Beginning in autumn 2016, all second-year students (those who have lived on campus fewer than semesters post high school) are required to live on the Columbus campus. Students who transition from Ohio State ATI to Columbus after just one year may be impacted by this policy change. Click here to learn more about the benefits of the Second-Year Transformational Experience (STEP) program.
The Office of Student Life's Off-Campus Off-Campus and Commuter Service's website can be a very helpful resource in exploring off-campus properties, reading student reviews, finding roommates, and learning more about the Columbus area.
Wherever you plan to stay during the school year be sure to invest in a good mattress. Take a look at some research from Tuck here.
