Housing Options

The University of Dayton and the Dayton community offer a wide variety of housing options for students. In the Dayton metropolitan area you will also find homes, condominiums and townhouses to rent or buy, as well as an array of apartments to fit any lifestyle.

On-Campus Housing

These units are typically offered only to only entering students, but sometimes have openings for upper-level students. For information, including rates and details about on-campus housing, please visit the Office of Housing and Residence Life's website. If you desire on-campus housing, you can reserve your space as soon as you have paid your first seat deposit.

On-campus housing options include University Place, Plumwood Terrace and  218 L Street Efficiency Apartments.

  • Plumwood Apartments, a 55-unit apartment building located three blocks from the School of Law, contains efficiency, single and two-bedroom apartments.
  • University Place, located across the street from the School of Law, offers studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units.

You will have the option to purchase a parking pass through our Parking Services Office if you bring your vehicle.

Off-Campus Housing

Off-campus housing is available to current students, as well as entering students, with a variety of housing options available in the Dayton area. Rental units are available in a host of apartment complexes as well as in private homes, town homes and condominiums in the Miami Valley. 

For off-campus housing, rents generally range from $550 to $900, depending on tastes in décor and location and if students are living alone or with one or more roommates. Many students live near campus, in surrounding suburbs or even commute from the Cincinnati area. Some of our law students take advantage of the renovated lofts available in downtown Dayton.
