Live the Duck Life
It’s your time to discover it all, reach out, and grow. The freedom to choose to explore what’s exciting and valuable to you, and to live how you want—that’s the Duck life!
On campus, you're close to everything you need. Walk or bike to class in just a few minutes, stop at one of our dining venues for a bite, and enjoy events like an academic symposium or a basketball game at Matthew Knight Arena.
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.
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!
Your Lifestyle and Community
The residence halls offer many room types, meal plan options, and Academic Residential 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!
