Living on campus at Oregon State can be a great option for graduate students who want the convenience of residence hall living and proximity to campus academic buildings and resources.
During the 2021-22 academic year, graduate students at Oregon State may live with other graduate students, post-baccalaureate or non-degree seeking students, or transfer students in one of our residence hall communities set aside for those who are beyond their first year of college. Other communities on campus, such as those built around common interests, or those aligned with academic programs, may be available upon request.
Living on campus puts you within walking distance of academic buildings and campus resources, so you can stay focused on your studies and other on-campus opportunities. Additional advantages of living in our residence halls include:
Whether you choose to live on or off campus, Oregon State dining welcomes you. From cafes serving locally roasted coffee to restaurants offering fresh, house-made meals, there is plenty of selection across campus. You can even have your food delivered to you by robot!
As an on-campus resident, you'll sign up for a dining plan to use at UHDS-operated locations, including Cascadia Market, our on-campus grocery store. When you spend from your dining plan, you'll receive a 20-percent discount at micro-restaurants in the dining centers and a 10-percent discount at other UHDS restaurants, cafes and markets. Explore UHDS locations and menus.
In addition, all students can take advantage of OSU's Orange Cash program. Use the Orange Cash account on your OSU ID card to pay at campus dining locations and get a 10-percent discount on your purchases. Orange Cash is also accepted at locations that don't take UHDS dining plans.
As a graduate student, you may apply to live in The Gem, campus apartments located just across Monroe Street. The Gem primarily features studio and one-bedroom units. Apartments are fully furnished and the complex offers amenities such as on-site laundry and a fitness center. Please be advised there is a waiting list for these spaces.
Students who are married, have registered domestic partners, or have children living at home can live in Orchard Court, Oregon State's family housing apartment community. Please be advised that there is a waiting list for these spaces; visit the Family Housing page to learn more about eligibility and housing options.
