Finding a spot on campus made easy.
The Ohio State University is filled with 60,000 people. It’s a small city. The competition to find an apartment or rental nearby is steep.
It means that the best places can get snatched up before you know it.
It can also mean that some landlords are charging insane prices for student housing.
Or, it could mean that you get stuck with a rundown apartment with a not-so-great landlord.
There are tons of ways that campus living can feel unfair.
At Lykens Companies, we believe that campus properties can be affordable, awesome, and a part of a network of responsibly managed properties. We believe that living on campus does not mean you have to compromise.
Here are some of our best campus rentals for the 2019 school year. Hurry, they won’t be available for long.
