Housing Policies

Housing Office Hours

The Housing Office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. If assistance is needed after hours, contact the Safety Services Office.

Housing Requirements

  • Must be under the age of 25.
  • Representatives of the University of Northwestern Ohio will be conducting dorm inspections every week and may enter the dorm when unoccupied. These inspection teams will leave a weekly Dorm Inspection Sheet. Major inspection areas are the kitchen area, living room, bathroom and bedrooms. Please have these areas neat and orderly.
  • The University of Northwestern Ohio cannot provide insurance for personal belongings. Insurance for these items in case they are damaged by acts of nature, such as floods, tornadoes, fire or theft is the student's responsibility. Students should purchase renter's insurance to cover damage to personal belongings.
  • If at any time students decide to leave school for one or more sessions or quarters, the University cannot guarantee space in on-campus housing upon returning. Students are required to complete an exit sheet and turn in the key before leaving campus.

Dorm Moves

If students are interested in moving, they are required to contact the Housing Office so written approval can be given. The University must have accurate records of dorm assignments in case of an emergency.
