Applying for 2013-14
For the 2013-2014 academic year this is a new contract and application process. As such, we want to be transparent and advise you on some changes that are different than in years past. The financial commitment to cancel as we get closer to the academic-school year has a much greater financial penalty. We encourage you to apply once you understand and are sure about these changes.
Admitted students who are eligible to apply for on-campus housing will complete and submit the $50 non-refundable application fee and the $350 prepayment of the contract at the same time. Students who complete this process are guaranteed a space in on-campus housing.
We encourage you to read about the Academic Residential Programs and review the University Housing Residence Hall Contract before you get started.
- First, you will need to fill out and submit the application on DuckWeb and electronically sign the residence hall contract.
- Next, you will need to make an initial payment that includes both the application fee and prepayment.
- After you have completed your application, signed your contract, and submitted your payments, you will have secured a residence hall space with University Housing for fall 2013–14.
- Fall room and hall assignments will be sent during August 2013. Winter and spring assignments will be e-mailed at least 48 hours prior to your arrival.The assignment will be based on your application data, Academic Residential Programs selection, FIG choices, and other considerations.

Students who qualify and who choose to defer their admissions fees, may also choose to defer their initial University Housing payment. An option to defer will be included in the online payment/application process, for those who qualify.
Deferrals have the same financial commitment as payments and must follow the same cancellation guidelines.
Students Younger Than 17 at Time of Housing Application
Students who have not yet turned 17 when they apply for housing may not use the online application/contract/payment process, and must instead submit a paper application. They will be sent a PDF copy of the contract to print and sign, along with a parent or guardian, and must return the contract with payment in order to secure a space. For assistance, call 541-346-4277 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applying for 2012-13
The online application for University Housing residence halls for 2012-13 is available on DuckWeb.
Please note: Law, AEI, graduate and conditionally admitted applicants do not have early access to DuckWeb, and thereby should
complete a paper application. Paper applications may be requested here.
A "Three-In-One" Online Process for Admitted Students
New for 2012-13, only students who have been offered UO admission will be able to apply to live in University Housing residence halls. The application, residence hall contract and initial payment will all be combined into an integrated online process through DuckWeb.
How it works:
1. Once offered admission by the university, students will be able to log onto DuckWeb and access the "Housing" menu.
2. In the "Housing" section of DuckWeb, they will be able to fill out and submit an application, read and virtually sign the residence hall contract, and make an initial payment that includes the application fee and prepayment.
3. When these steps are all complete, the student will have secured a residence hall space with University Housing for fall 2012–13. All three steps (application, contract and payment) must be complete to secure a space.
4. University Housing will assign students their rooms during the summer of 2012, based on application data, academic residential programs, lifestyle interests, FIG choices, and other considerations. Room assignment information will be sent to students in August 2012.
We at the University of Oregon and University Housing are dedicated to creating a respectful, positive, and inclusive community for all our residents. Celebrating our diverse community and challenging racism, homophobia, sexism, and other forms of oppression are key to a community's success and the future success of students.
While we respect everyone's right to a personal viewpoint, we are an academic community that is part of a larger community and world that is increasingly diverse. In addition, technology, business, and educational opportunities have made it necessary for all of us to think of ourselves as world citizens. All of us will benefit from increasing our ability to understand and communicate effectively with people who are different from us. A fundamental starting point for this is treating each other respectfully.
The University of Oregon actively promotes cultural diversity and equal opportunity. We honor the humanity that joins us and we celebrate the differences that distinguish us. University Housing has an expectation that all residents will actively participate in creating welcoming communities that value all members without regard to race, color, sex, disability, national origin, age, religion, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Our highly trained staff is awaiting your call to discuss any concerns you may have. For more information about a housing space that best suits your needs, please call 541-346-4277. Your call will be handled discreetly by authorized staff members.
