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.

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 e-mail address and as a log-in credential for university services.
Go to the ONID website to activate your account; select “Sign Up for ONID” on the left hand side.
Students who have majors in the College of Business are required to live in College of Business communities. Business students who would like to live outside these communities or with a non-Business roommate can contact us for more information.

Students who complete the application by May 1, 2019 are eligible to participate in roommate selection.
Pay your Advance Tuition Deposit committing to Oregon State.
Before you can receive a room assignment, you must register for a START orientation session.
Students who have completed their application and paid their Advance Tuition Deposit by May 1, 2019, will receive an email with a login invitation to My College Roomie, an online roommate matching system we use to help you find potential roommates. Filling out OSU's My College Roomie questionnaire 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.
If you complete the housing application after May 1, 2019, our staff will match you with a roommate.
Make sure you understand how gender identity affects roommate matching.
Return to My College Roomie during our roommate selection period, May 1-31, 2019, to search for potential roommates. Make sure they are eligible for the same communities you are. For example, pre-Business students may only match with other pre-Business students. If you wish to live in a triple or quad room, you can select more than one roommate. See more roommate matching tips.
If you have a friend you already know you would like to live with, you both must fill out the My College Roomie questionnaire and then select each other.
If you wish to select your own roommate, you must confirm your roommate matches through My College Roomie by May 31, 2019. If you do not confirm a roommate in My College Roomie, our staff will match you with a roommate.
Students must complete all items in Steps 1-4 before they can receive a room assignment.
Room assignments will begin in June 2019 for students who completed their application by May 31, 2019.
The first batch of room assignment notifications will be sent at 2 p.m. on June 19, 2019, and will continue in additional batches approximately every two weeks throughout the summer.
You will receive a room assignment based on how early you completed your application. Students who did not complete the application by May 31, 2019, will receive room assignments later in the summer.
