Laundry in Oregon State University residence halls is free for residents; no coins or cards are required.
Each resident room has a bin for trash and a bin for recycling. When the room bins are full, residents need to empty them in the building's trash and recycling areas.
Engineering Living-Learning Community: All pre-engineering majors are welcome in the Engineering Living-Learning Community.
This unique living community is a great way for pre-engineering students to make friendships and create connections between their in-class and out-of-class experiences. Residents can get to know College of Engineering faculty and advisors outside of the classroom, and also have access to the DamLab Makerspace, a state-of-the-art lab equipped with 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC mills and other tools, on the first floor of Buxton Hall.
Second Year and Above: The first floor and some corner suites on upper floors contain a Second Year & Above community for engineering students who have already completed at least one year of college. Second Year & Above community residents can access a private lounge, a large updated kitchen, and single-user gender-inclusive bathrooms on the floor.
Women in Science and Engineering: The fifth floor of Buxton is home to a Women in Science Engineering (WISE) floor, an opportunity for women in science to gain coaching and mentorship specific to their program.
Single-Gender Suites: Buxton has single-gender suites that are available to students requesting a religious exemption. Residents of these suites agree to no visitors of the opposite gender and a substance-free environment.
Professional Staff: Each hall has a professional staff member who lives on campus, supervises student staff members, and is available to meet with students one-on-one for guidance and support.
Student Staff: A team of student staff members lives in Buxton Hall to assist residents.
