The terms “residence hall” and “dorm” are often used interchangeably; however, there is a difference between the two.
An important objective of residence halls at the University of Oregon is to provide not just a place to sleep, but also opportunities
for personal and educational growth. Highly trained Residence Life staff and Hall Government officers support this objective by
creating engaging activities and programs in each floor or hall. At the University of Oregon, we are proud to say you’ll be
living in a residence hall.
