Campus Housing

Nationwide Children’s Hospital is proud to offer Campus Housing to our visiting scholars, out-of-state residents, and others. For more than 10 years the International Scholars Program has made visitors welcome in their home away from home by providing a comfortable, private space to relax in after a hard day’s work. These 1, 2, and 3-bedroom rentals are continuously upgraded making them ideal for a short term, personalized living experience.


Each rental unit is fully furnished and includes all the amenities of home. The culturally diverse neighborhood is located 1 short block from the hospital and in-house fitness center. The apartments are a 5-minute drive to restaurants, theaters, art galleries, sports arenas, houses of worship, and cultural events. Non-drivers will find it easy to navigate the city on the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) bus lines that stop 2 blocks away. Nationwide Children’s Hospital Main Campus Map.
