All 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?
Complete and submit your application for admission to Oregon State as a transfer student.
Once you have been admitted (including students enrolled in the Degree Partnership Program and Educational Opportunities Program), you’ll receive an OSU Network ID (ONID) account. Your ONID serves as your university email address and as a login credential for university services.
Go to the ONID website to activate your account; select “Activate your ONID.” Once you've activated it, remember to check your Oregon State ONID email throughout the year, as that's where we will send housing-related information and updates.
We have residence hall communities that are set aside for students in their second year of college or above, including communities just for transfer students.
If you have a domestic partner or dependents, check out our on-campus family housing.
Take a look at our room and dining rates. (Rates for the 2024-25 academic year will be released in spring 2024.)

Which dining plan suits your needs?
Students entering OSU fall term 2024 can apply to live in the residence halls for the 2024-25 academic year beginning Feb. 6, 2024.
Log in and apply through the housing portal.
Complete "part one" in the application: along with providing demographic and contact information, you will select top choices for communities you'd prefer to live in. The earlier you complete part one of the application, the better your chances are of receiving an assignment in one of these spaces.
You can return to the application to update your answers later without affecting your part one completion date.
Learn about entering winter or spring terms.
Pay your Advance Tuition Deposit confirming your intent to enroll at Oregon State.
As space allows, transfer students will be able to go through room selection or verify a room placement. After they have selected a room, students will be able to sign the contract. Notification of their application status will start on April 2, 2024.
Complete "part two" in the application: return to the housing portal to sign a 2024-2025 UHDS Room and Dining Contract beginning May 2, 2024. You will be given access to sign the contract once you have selected a room or room placement. Make sure you understand the contract before you complete it.
We will continue to accept applications for fall 2024 beyond June 30, 2024. Access to sign the contract and be given a housing assignment will be made only on a space-available basis.
