Finding a Place to Live


The Dayton area is a great place to call home

Whether you’re on your own or have a family, plan to rent or buy, want a city or suburban setting, have something specific in mind or just need a decent place for a good price, you can find it here. After all, you may be spending a lot of time on campus or at clinical sites while you’re here, but when you do head home, it helps to live somewhere just right for your needs.

In 2013, the Dayton area ranked as the fifth most affordable among metropolitan statistical areas with a population of 500,000 or more, according to the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Opportunity Index. About 85 percent of the homes in the Dayton area were affordable to families making the median income of $60,000, according to the NAHB.

Nestled in the heart of Southwest Ohio, Dayton is a vibrant, diverse city that offers something for everyone. The Dayton region combines an excellent quality of life and low cost of living; encompasses a wide variety of unique urban, suburban, and rural communities; and features many of the resources and amenities of a much larger city (arts and culture, sports and recreation, shopping and dining) while avoiding most the drawbacks (traffic, high costs, congestion). Whatever your needs and interests, Dayton has something wonderful in store for you.
