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

Students in the School of Law are eligible for on-campus housing. The University maintains approximately 100 apartments designated for graduate and law students. Applications for the upcoming academic year open each spring semester in late January. Available spaces are offered to students in application date order. For information about on-campus housing options, including rates and facility details, please visit the Office of Housing and Residence Life's website.

Currently available options include University Place and Plumwood Apartments.

  • University Place, offers 48 apartment units in studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom configurations. University Place apartments are located diagonally from the School of Law and are conveniently located near Brown St. restaurants/shops.
  • Plumwood Apartments, offers 55 apartment units in studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom configurations. Located adjacent to Fitz Hall, Plumwood is a short (approximately 10 minute) walk to the School of Law.

Both facilities are located on Brown St. with access to local shops and restaurants. Additionally, both facilities are located on local transit routes including ‘The Flyer’ a free shuttle that connects campus with downtown entertainment and business districts.


Parking on-campus is managed through the University’s Parking Services office. Students who wish to bring a vehicle to campus must purchase a parking pass each year. Both commuter and residential students must purchase a parking pass to park in campus parking lots.

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 $750 to $1100 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.
