Getting started on your housing application

All Oregon State students are eligible for on-campus housing. The housing application will ask you questions about yourself and your living and dining preferences to help determine your best fit for on-campus housing.

What type of student are you?

1. Research Your Options

Take a look at our rates.

Pick a Dining Plan

Which dining plan suits your needs?

Remember that any unused funds from this year will roll over to next year.



2. Apply for Housing

The housing application for Fall 2019 returning students will be available Jan. 15, 2019 at 2 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. The application is closed during the month of June 2019 and open again July 1, 2019.

Your application is also your contract; make sure you understand the application before you complete it.

Apply through the MyUHDS Web portal

The earlier you complete your application, the better your chances are of receiving your top choices.

Select your top choices for buildings and dining plan. You may return to the application to update your answers without affecting your application completion date.

Apply through MyUHDS

March 31, 2019, is the priority application deadline. Returning student housing applications will still be accepted after this date, but housing staff will assign rooms and roommates for later applicants.


3. Find a Roommate

Fill out the Roommate Questionnaire.

This will help you find someone in our online roommate matching system if you want to choose your own roommate, and will help our staff match you if you do not choose your own roommate.

Roommate matching for returning students will be available beginning Feb. 1, 2019.

If you have roommates already selected, you can confirm each other as roommates within our system.

If you are searching for a roommate, return to the roommate matching system throughout February and March to search for potential roommates for next year.

If you wish to select your own roommate, submit your selection through MyUHDS by March 31, 2019.



4. Room Selection or Assignment

In April, returning students who completed a housing application by March 31, 2019, will receive a date and time to return and login to select a room for fall.

On your selection date (it will be some time between April 15 and April 30, depending on when you applied for housing) you can log in to MyUHDS and select your room.

Check out our guide to second-year and above room selection for details on the process.

May 15, 2019, is the deadline to cancel a housing contract for fall. After that date, you will be held to the policies listed in the contract.

Students who did not complete the application by March 31, 2019 can still receive on-campus housing. Housing assignments will be offered on a rolling basis through September 2019. See your housing contract for details on accepting or declining an assignment, as well as the cancellation policy.
