Residence Halls at Oregon State University are grouped into three areas: East, West, and South. Each residence hall area has a nearby dining center and a service center where residents can receive assistance and pick up their mail and packages.


The east side of campus includes several residence halls, McNary Dining Center, and McNary Service Center. The east side of campus has ample parking and a satellite office for Student Health Services. It's close to the Valley Library and Kerr Administration Building, which houses the Registrar's Office and the Career Development Center. Residents of the east side are a short walk from downtown Corvallis, where students can visit shops, restaurants, cafes, and the Corvallis Farmers Market.


The South side of campus is home to several residence halls, Southside Station at Arnold dining center, and Arnold Service Center. Students can also use their dining plan to shop at the nearby campus grocery store, Cascadia Market, or grab coffee next door at Cascadia Café on the south side of campus. There is ample resident-zoned parking on the south side. South side residents are close to Reser Stadium, Gill Coliseum, Goss Stadium, the Beaver Store, and Dixon Recreation Center.


The West side of campus is home to several residence halls, Marketplace West dining center, and West Service Center. West side residence halls are also close to Bing's at Weatherford cafe, Dixon Recreation Center, and the intramural fields at Student Legacy Park. The Memorial Union and Oregon State's new classroom building, the Learning Innovation Center, are also nearby. West side residence halls are all located a quarter-mile or more from resident-zoned parking.
