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.
If you are looking for a studio or one-bedroom apartment, you could consider The Gem.
Take a look at our room and dining rates. (Rates for the 2023-24 academic year will be released in spring 2023.)

Which dining plan suits your needs?
Students entering OSU fall term 2023 can apply to live in the residence halls for the 2023-24 academic year beginning Feb. 7, 2023.
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.
Pay your Advance Tuition Deposit confirming your intent to enroll at Oregon State.
Complete "part two" in the application: return to the housing portal to sign a 2023-2024 UHDS Room and Dining Contract beginning May 2, 2023. You are required to sign a contract prior to being assigned a room. Make sure you understand the contract before you complete it.
The priority deadline for transfer students for fall 2023 housing is June 30, 2023. Students with a submitted housing application and signed contract by June 30 will be eligible to participate in online roommate matching and will be given priority for a room assignment on campus.
We will continue to accept applications and contracts for fall 2023 beyond June 30; however, those assignments will be made only on a space-available basis.
Oregon State offers an online roommate matching process that allows students to select their own roommate. Participating in roommate matching is optional. Our staff will match you with another student if you do not select your own roommate.
Make sure you understand how gender identity affects roommate matching.
To be eligible for online roommate matching, you must have submitted your housing application and completed the housing contract by June 30. Online roommate matching will be available from July 5 to July 20.
If you have a friend you already know you would like to live with, you must both select one another in the roommate matching system.
Transfer student room assignments will be sent to student ONID email addresses beginning in August and continue throughout the summer.
