Off-Campus Housing

​​​​Kent State Tuscarawas is a regional campus and does not have on-campus housing units. Our students commute to and from campus.

Our campus is located in Tuscarawas County, a beautiful, predominantly rural, area in East Central Ohio. As of the 2020 census, our population was 93, 263 and our county contains a diverse population of Appalachian and immigrant communities, as well as Amish and Mennonite families.

There are many factors to consider when searching for housing. Things such as commuting distance, roommates, and cost should all be considered as you begin your search. As Tuscarawas does not hold any metropolitan areas, larger apartment complexes can be hard to find in the local vicinity, and predominately privately rented homes and apartments are what can be found around campus.

One option when beginning your search is to look into local realtors who also manage properties in the area. Realtors listed on this page are provided for a possible source of information only, Kent State Tuscarawas does not recommend one realtor over another and is not responsible for any decision that is made by the student to enter into a rental agreement on the part of students/faculty/staff or any persons who access this site.

If this will be your first time living independently, we have provided a useful handbook to assist in locating off-campus housing and navigating the landlord-tenant relationship. It should not be considered legal advice. You are encouraged to consult independent legal means should any questions or concerns arise during the course of the landlord-tenant relationship.
