University District & Old North Columbus

A Unique Community Just Around the Corner

Old North ColumbusSouth of Hudson St. on the east side of N. High St., Old North Columbus and the University District are located just North of The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

The housing stock is a mix of single and multiple family homes with occasional smaller apartment complexes. The majority of the homes were built prior to 1930, and represent a variety of styles from basic American foursquare to other types of revival style architecture.

These neighborhoods were also initially developed as “streetcar” developments, the intention being that most residents would rely upon the High Street streetcar lines to travel to downtown Columbus. Garages for the earliest developed streets are accessed via alleys behind the properties.

Old North Columbus has had a long history of restaurants, bars, and music venues, which still holds true today. With the core of commercial district located along High Street, the businesses in the neighborhood range from grocery stores to barber shops, but primarily this has been a popular entertainment district for students at Ohio State.
