CHICAGO — Ohio State University is coming to market this week with at least $300 million of taxable general receipts bonds that feature 100-year maturities, marking the first time a public university has floated century bonds.

The bonds will have a single bullet payment due in 2111. The structure represents a shift from the school’s tradition of issuing serial bonds with 20-year maturities to large bullet maturities and long-end amortizations.
