NO CHANGE IN OHIO STATE FAMILY HOUSING POLICY, SAYS GEE COLUMBUS -- The Ohio State University will not be making a change in its policy that allows only married couples and single parents with children to live in its "family housing" area. Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee said today that, "After discussions with many people, including individual conversations with members of our Board of Trustees, I have decided to remove from consideration any change in the family housing policy at Ohio State." Last May, a final decision was deferred on an administrative recommendation that would have allowed gay and lesbian couples who had signed an affidavit of "domestic partnership" to live in the university's 396-unit Buckeye Village. Gee's announcement maintains the status quo. The average age of students living in Buckeye Village is 31. More than 80 percent are international students and 90 percent are in graduate or professional school. # Contact: Malcolm Baroway, Executive Director, University Communications (614) 292-6895.
