Incoming graduate students who are attending Grad Welcome Week can move in beginning September 8, 2018. To confirm your need to arrive, please email: Housing@oregonstate.edu
Bring your OSU ID card to check in. You will need it to access your building and to eat in the dining center. If you did not receive your ID card during your START program, please pick it up at the ID Center located in Memorial Union room 103. Without your OSU ID card, you will be required to show an alternate ID at check-in and our staff will advise you on temporary options.
You can find your mailing address and mailbox information online via your MyUHDS account. Remember that your mailbox number is different than your room number.
You can send packages or mail to your residence hall address when mailboxes are assigned on September 4. The Service Center where your mailbox is located will hold your mail and packages until the end of the first week of Fall Term.

UHDS recommends purchasing Personal Property or Renters Insurance either through your family’s existing account, or through one of many insurance agencies.
With easy access to grocery stores, restaurants and other destinations within walking distance from campus, many students find bringing a car is not necessary. For destinations further from campus, students can check out a bike from Pedal Corvallis, ride the Corvallis Transit System (CTS) for free, or rent a ZipCar.
Parking permits are required year-round on the OSU Corvallis campus. On campus residents are only eligible for R1 or R2 parking permits, which can sell out. If you need to bring a car, secure a parking permit before bringing a vehicle. More information about purchasing a residential parking permit can be found on the Transportation Services website.
For all students arriving before or after the standard arrival day, please check in with the Service Center that works with the building you will be living in.
West Side Residents (Cauthorn, Buxton, Hawley, Poling, Sackett, Weatherford, and West)
East Side Residents (Callahan, McNary, Tebeau and Wilson)

To be eligible for early arrival you must be part of a pre-arranged group (such as Marching Band, ROTC, or pre-college programs). If you’re unsure whether you are approved for early arrival you must speak to your program coordinator. Individual early arrivals will not be accepted. For more information, please contact UHDS at 541-737-4771.
Students arriving after 5 p.m. on Move-In Day must check-in at their service center, and if it is after 8 p.m. with the on-duty Resident Assistant (RA) in their assigned building. The RA on-duty can be reached by calling the cell phone number that is posted on the residence hall doors.
