Theme Houses

House of Black Culture

Theme Houses are an on-campus living option for students with a common goal. Residents of each house are expected to create and take part in programming events to benefit the residents, the special interest group they represent, and the campus community. Any full-time sophomore, junior or senior Otterbein student in good standing with the University is eligible to live in a University-operated house.

Each house is advised by a University academic or administrative department which determines the selection process for students residing in the individual houses. 

Houses are eligible for gender inclusive housing, meaning students residing in the houses may determine if the house will be gender inclusive or single sex. All residents must agree to the status prior to signing an agreement to live in the house.

For questions about the Theme Houses, please email reslife@otterbein.edu.
