About University Housing
University Housing is committed to facilitating students’ development as they build an inclusive community, establish a sense of home, and succeed academically. We value diversity and respect, integrity and equality, learning and growth, responsibility and accountability, and safety and security. We work hard to incorporate our values into our daily work and practices to ensure we are providing the best experience for our Ducks.
We know that living on campus adds value to the UO student experience and contributes to a higher GPA and future success for most students—and we are proud of the work we are doing with Academic Residential Programs and other initiatives to support the mission of the institution.
