Most new students will live in our Spirit Hall at Days Inn in our University-Sponsored housing.  That is our freshman housing.  In the event that freshman-only housing fills up, incoming freshman residents might be placed in upperclassman housing.

Research indicates that students who reside on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, perform stronger academically and are more likely to graduate within four years than their commuting classmates.  In addition, they have a strong support system with peers who are going through similar experiences.

Cohabitation is not permitted on OUAZ’s campus. Each building has separate housing areas for each gender. Daily “open hall hours” allow you to visit friends of the opposite gender in the suite’s living room.

You may decorate your room with fun bedding, photos of friends and family, throw pillows, rugs, etc. You may also hang posters using 3M hooks or staples. Check out the What to Bring section on this page for more information.

Freshman housing has a couch, Cable TV and a TV, coffee table, microwave and a memory foam mattress.  Apartment style housing also have kitchen table or counter, washer and dryer, dishwasher, stove and refrigerator.

Yes, every room has air conditioning and heating. Electric Bills for the apartment style are covered each month up to $100. 

You are assigned a specific move-in time and date based upon your residence hall assignment. Fall move-in is approximately one week before classes begin. Spring move-in for new students is the Saturday before classes begin.

You may bunk beds to create more space efficiency. Ask your RA or RD for that option when you arrive.

No, all OUAZ-provided furniture must remain in the room and intact through the duration of your stay. Any removed or missing furniture at the end of the year will result in housing fines.

If you have extenuating circumstances that require a private room, contact Student Disability Services.

No, OUAZ does not offer student storage.  We recommend storing items at one of the many local public storage facilities.
