Living in the heart of Beaver Nation is a great way to get connected to life on campus. More than 800 sophomores and above--many of them transfer students--call Oregon State residence halls home. With flexible contracts, a variety of room and suite options, and professional live-in staff to answer questions, living on campus can simplify your transfer process.

Where to Live

All residence halls are open to transfer students, but many choose to live with other upper division students in halls that are either partially or fully set aside for sophomore and above, transfer, and graduate students.

Living on campus is a great way to set up a successful transition to OSU:  you are a few minutes walking from the center of campus life, and it’s the best way to get connected to campus resources while meeting other transfer students new to OSU.

Student Family Housing

Students who are married, have registered domestic partners, or have children living at home can live in Orchard Court, Oregon State's family housing apartment community. Please be advised that there is a waiting list for these spaces; visit the Family Housing page to learn more about eligibility and housing options.

Halls for Sophomore and Above Students

Halsell Hall is exclusively for sophomore and above students. It offers suite rooms, with four single or two double bedrooms sharing a common area with kitchenette, living room, and one-and-a-half bathrooms.

Bloss Hall offers two floors exclusively for Sophomore and Above students and offers a variety of room arrangements. Students can select a four-person suite, with two double rooms sharing a private bathroom. Students who want more privacy can select a single, and students who want more space can reserve what would normally be a shared double as a single room. Bloss also offers small doubles as a more economical option. The 7th Floor is reserved for graduate students.

Tebeau Hall is the newest residence hall on campus and offers suite-style housing, with three double rooms sharing a private bathroom. Tebeau also features spacious kitchens on every floor.
