To apply for housing, you will need to complete an online application for The GEM apartments, which you can access through our housing application portal. Apartment assignments are contingent upon space availability in the apartment type you are eligible for, as well as on your application priority date. Your application priority date is established when you have finished your online application.
If an apartment becomes available when your name is at the top of the waiting list in your priority category, you will be contacted to verify your interest in the available apartment via your Oregon State email account.
You will have a deadline in your apartment offer email (usually 72 hours) by which you have to respond to the offer. If you do not respond, you will be removed from the waitlist. Unless it is otherwise indicated in your apartment offer email, you will have up to 30 days to take occupancy of the apartment we offer, should you accept.
If you accept the offer: You will receive a confirmation email to coordinate a day for you to move in and officially pick up keys for your apartment. The day you pick up keys is the day we begin charging rent for occupancy. A $50.00 non-refundable contract fee will be applied to your OSU student account at the time you accept the offer.
If you decline the offer: If you decline the offer, and wish to remain on the waitlist, you may do so. If you choose to decline three apartment offers, your application will be removed from the waiting list.
When the apartment is available for you to move in, you will pick up your keys from the GEM Office. Please be aware that we do not allow there to be more than two people (of any age) per bedroom to reside in any of our units.
