Have you decided where youâ€™re going to live next year?
Itâ€™s time for OSU students to choose their 2011-12 living options. We suggest applying for housing as soon as possible. Students wanting to live off campus are finding a tight rental market with a vacancy rate of about 1%. However, there are still many great options available for on-campus housing, including Halsell Hall, designed for upper-division students, and the new International Living Learning Center (ILLC) which opens in September, 2011.
Halsell hall is a great opportunity for returning students, as it is home to the Upper-division Experience (20 years-old and up) and Gender Inclusive Living programs, in an apartment-style living environment. This means students can choose to live in a room with any other student they wish including any gender identification.
Students and their suitemates have increased privacy and amenities with a shared living room/common area, private bathrooms, and a kitchenette. In Halsell students can connect with other residents of similar interests and values while enjoying the convenience of on-campus living.
An exciting new living option is the new ILLC opening on the southside of campus this fall. Domestic and international residents can have an international experience without ever leaving Corvallis. The ILLC will be a global village on campus, with about 50% of the residents representing many countries in Southeast Asia and beyond. In addition to program offering, there will be opportunities to pair up with language partners, cook meals together and engage with people different from yourself.
Each domestic student will be paired with an international roommate, and each room will share a bathroom with another room. Students can select to share a suite with a domestic friend and share the experience of living with international roommates.
