All international students enrolled in courses at the OSU Corvallis campus are eligible to live on campus.

Students who live on campus get better grades and graduate faster than those who live off campus. A variety of housing options are available to suit the needs of every student.

First Year Experience

First-Year Experience and On-Campus Living Policy First-year undergraduate students in degree-seeking programs who enroll at Oregon State University within one year of high school graduation regardless of class standing, including INTO OSU Undergraduate Pathway students, must live on-campus for the full academic year (fall, winter and spring terms).


Living-Learning and Special Interest Communities

These special communities bring students with similar interests (e.g. adventure) or academic study majors (e.g. business) together to live and learn with their peers in a designated residence hall. This environment can enhance your academic and personal success. Learn more and select your preferences when you complete the online housing application and contract.


Living off campus

For students who do not fall under the First Year Live-On Requirement, living off campus is an option. For more information:
