Residence Life

Residence Life at Central State University is here to prepare students with diverse backgrounds and experiences for leadership, research, and service by providing a nurturing environment that fosters academic excellence.

Our on-campus housing consists of eight residence halls, which house over 1,200 students. Living in one of the residence halls at Central State University is an important component of a student's total learning experience. It provides a unique opportunity for students to participate in campus life to the fullest extent possible because of its proximity to cultural, intellectual, and social events. The idea of residence hall living is to create and maintain an environment that is conducive to the total development of each member of the community.

On-campus living provides a variety of challenges and opportunities for each student resident. Although this unique living environment offers a large degree of freedom, it imposes an obligation on the residential student to use freedom wisely. In addition to assuming responsibility for his/her own behavior, every resident must respect the needs and concerns of others.


We encourage all incoming students to review our 2020-2021 Residential Move-In Guide and other relevant documents.

Please feel free to contact us at our office on the ground floor of Foundation Hall II or by calling 937-376-6386.
