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.
