Get admitted to Oregon State! Apply for Housing Deposit & Register Choose your room

Complete and submit your application for admission.
Once you have been admitted, (including students enrolled in the OSU Degree Partnership Program and Educational Opportunities Program), you’ll receive an ONID account to serve as your university email address.
To activate your online account, select Sign up for ONID and follow the directions to activate your account.

The housing application will be available
after Feb. 1. Find a link to the application
on the UHDS website via MyUHDS. Don’t delay!
Room selection dates and room assignments are made based on the date of the submitted application. The earlier you apply, the more choice you will have in your living environment.
In the spring, before you can select a room, you must pay your Advanced Tuition Deposit (ATD) to Oregon State and register for a summer START orientation session


Once you have completed the previous steps,
you will be able to select a room in June. You will receive the dates you are able to select a space in the halls you are eligible for in May so that you can plan accordingly for Room Selection in June.

UHDS guarantees a room for all first-year students. Some halls are more popular than others, so be prepared with your first choice and a back-up plan when making your room selection.

UHDS will assign rooms after July 1 for all students who applied after May 1.

  • When you select a space or are assigned to one, you will pay a nonrefundable contract signing fee. The $50 fee will be charged to your student account.
  • Returning students get priority in selecting roommates and rooms on campus, and complete their room selection process in the spring before new students.
