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.
For first-year students moving to in Fall 2021: The new student housing application opens February 10, 2021, at 2 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
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.
