The Offices of Neighborhood Services and Collaboration and Off-Campus and Commuter Student Engagement

Neighborhood Services and Collaboration is The Ohio State University's central resource center in terms of off-campus living. NSC assists students, faculty and staff when searching for off-campus housing, provides educational information on typical renting requirements, precautions to take as well as steps to take prior to signing a lease. The office also provides helpful information that is applicable during one's entire off-campus living experience. In addition, Neighborhood Services and Collaboration provides roommate services, sublet services, legal referrals, among various other resources pertaining to living off-campus. Neighborhood Services and Collaboration holds an annual Housing Fair, which allows students, faculty and staff to gather information from landlords, businesses and other off-campus entities in order to make an informed decision regarding their off-campus living arrangements. The next Off-Campus Housing Fair will be held November 29, 2012 and November 30, 2012 in the Performance Hall of the Ohio Union. Roommate Fairs are also held at least once each semester. The next Roommate Fair will be held on May 11, 2012 from 5pm-6pm in 1000 Ohio Union. Neighborhood Services and Collaboration also works towards educating students on safety, on and off-campus. The Senior Director of NSC, Willie Young, monitors the off-campus neighborhoods throughout the year, making sure students are being smart and staying safe. NSC also provides FREE window/door alarms to all students. Simply stop by 3106 Ohio Union to get your free window/door alarms today! If you are living off-campus, whether it be in the University District or in the Columbus area, let the office of Neighborhood Services and Collaboration be part of your off-campus living experience.
