Affectionately dubbed "O-House" by residents, this hall is a nine-story building arranged in suites composed of two bedrooms and a bathroom. A limited number of single rooms are also available. Each room comes furnished with two beds, two desks, two three-drawer pedestals, and one four-drawer dresser.
Oglethorpe House features full-service laundry facilities, vending machines, foosball, ping pong tables, a television lounge and study rooms. Two elevators run from the basement to the ninth floors and a 24-hour front desk monitors access to the building. The hall is governed by the Oglethorpe House Hall Council, a student-run group that negotiates facility concerns and building regulations and plans social activities such as the Halloween Bash, Movie Night, and pool parties.
Getting to dinner is a snap for the residents of Oglethorpe House, as this residence hall is located next door to Oglethorpe Dining Commons. A bus stop at one end of the building provides service to the rest of campus.
