If you plan to commute to campus: If you plan on living away from campus and driving everyday there are a number of surrounding communities that are within a 15-20 minute drive.

- Grandview is just west of campus and is populated mostly by young families and graduate and professional students. On most days a commute from Grandview would take 5-10 minutes.
- Clintonville is just north of campus. This is a very nice community with a lot of families. A commute from Clintonville could take 5-10 minutes by car, but is on the COTA route and has a very nice bike path that leads to campus.
- Right around Bethel and Henderson Roads there is a large community of Condominiums. This area is very nice and very close to a lot of shopping. The commute takes longer if you hit rush hour traffic. Most days you should be able to make it to campus in 20 minutes.
- German Village is a really unique and quaint community in downtown Columbus. Any commute from downtown Columbus will probably take 15-20 minutes to get to campus.
