Profile: University District

Profile: University District

Columbus’ University District is located in the north of the city, and it has all the diversions so beloved by students – cozy taverns modeled on Irish pubs and fast food restaurants dispatching international cuisine quicker than you can say dim sum or burrito.

To say that Ohio State University excels at sports is something of an understatement. The Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium is constantly abuzz with athletics events, while the Buckeyes are the cream of Ohio sports – catch the AFL games in Ohio Stadium. Join the scarlet-clad crowds as they cheer wildly for their beloved team.

    Efficient, Friendly, and Convenient

    The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. When visiting OSU I will stay there. The rooms are small but eco friendly and super space efficient.t

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for us being in for The Ohio State football game. Room was quiet comfortable and the property was very well kept.

    I like the room and it’s colors of course…O H. however after about 20 min of being there we noticed a lot of stuff. There were a number of chipped or holes in the wall that were poorly patched. The coffee machine didn’t work. Also a lot of sliding doors were off track. Other than that it was awesome tho. The fridge was big and the view was cool.

    If you want sleep... it's not happening here.

    If you are thinking this is a normal hotel it is not. It is dorm style room. The walls are paper thin. I could hear the couple in the next room talking at a normal tone all night long. They were not rude or loud. That is how thin the walls were. I felt like they were in the room with us. Overall the everything else was very clean and tidy. Also in walking distance to Value City Arena. Would not stay again just on price, the size of the room, and the extremely thin walls.

    Great Location

    Great campus location. Basically student dorm type housing but an easy access to campus. Just behind the Varsity Club off Lane and a couple minute walk to High Street

    Great place to stay.

    Very clean facility. I was unaware that the property is also student housing, but it honestly made no difference. The students were never an issue. The location is fabulous for on campus activities like sports events or visiting a student

    Bang for the Buck!

    Very cool place. For a busy weekend event, was about $200 cheaper than anything else close. Pros: LOCATION, modern, clean, hip, everything 1-2 people need to be cozy... Cons: SMALL, noisy. Overall, very happy I chose to stay here, I wish I was able to make more out of my visit, but if I'm ever back near OSU, this is where I'm staying. Go Bucks!
