Strategic Plan—Current Draft

Core Purpose

Our purpose as University Housing is to facilitate students’ development as they build an inclusive community, establish a sense of home, and succeed academically.

Our Big Goal

Become the model of excellence for providing accessible, affordable, and student-centered living-learning experiences: the preferred choice for all UO students.

Our Core Values

Our decisions and daily work reflect these values:

  • Diversity & Respect
  • Integrity & Equity
  • Learning & Growth
  • Responsibility & Accountability
  • Safety & Security

Vivid Description of the Desired Future

University Housing models excellence by being a hub of innovation—creative and prudent in our approach toward accessible buildings, services, initiatives, and support structures for everyone.

Students recognize that living on campus adds value to their UO experience by ensuring a lower debt load at graduation, contributing to a higher GPA, and their future success. Residents receive a warm welcome and find a sense of belonging through active engagement in our programs and services, while contributing their ideas and opinions to shape future decisions.

Students thrive in our award-winning residence facilities living alongside faculty. Students living off campus benefit by joining our community for meals or participating in learning opportunities in our state-of-the-art classrooms.

Every community is buzzing with families of the University Housing Alumni Association as they return to celebrate renovations that prioritize technology and sustainability, as well as the opening of new living-learning spaces in which they have invested their time, money, and support.

Colleagues flock to our department to collaborate with our passionate and experienced staff. Recognizing that our success lies in staff development and satisfaction, we have implemented a training program that attracts professionals from both inside and outside the university, of whom are eager to learn from us and adopt our methods.
