About the Housing Application

PLEASE NOTE: With few exceptions, Oregon State University requires first year students to live on campus as part of the First Year Experience. Students will have the opportunity to file for an exemption or appeal the process. Read the live-on policy and frequently asked questions for more information.

See a copy of the housing and dining contract before you sign.

You do not have a space secured until you have signed your contract. It is important to understand your contract before you sign it.

If you are under 17 years of age, you will need to sign the electronic contract to confirm your room, but will also receive a paper contract in the mail that 
you and your parent/guardian must cosign and return to the UHDS office.
All students must sign their contract electronically prior to being assigned a room.

* Includes a $50 housing contract processing fee assessed to students who have a room and board contract with UHDS for Fall. Charges are assessed to OSU student account at the time that the housing contract is signed online (after May 1).
