Live the Duck Life
Living on campus is a great way to make friends and get involved.
Not only are you making friends and memories that will last a lifetime, you are creating a foundation for success. First-time, full-time freshmen from the US have higher GPAs, higher retention rates, higher graduation rates, and faster graduation times when they spend their first academic year living in University Housing at the University of Oregon.
First-Year Students Live On Campus
All incoming first-year undergraduate students live on campus at the University of Oregon. Learn more about the live-on requirement.
Your Lifestyle and Community
The residence halls offer many room types, meal plans, and Academic Residential Communities or Specialized Communities to provide a living experience that's just right for you. Living with new people who share your interests is a fast track to exploring what you love to do.
Living in the residence halls is a great launching point for your academic and personal success!
Connections and Support
Here, you'll meet new people! Study with your roommate on Humpy Lumpy Lawn, have an all-you-care-to-eat dinner with your hall mates, and plan community events through the Residence Hall Association.
It's easy to meet faculty, too. Some professors hold office hours directly in the residence halls because they want to meet you and help you succeed. Visit your Faculty Fellows when you need a hand. Plus, you can grab a coffee or meal with your professor, and we’ll pay for it!
