Register for Housing

Housing registration for admitted students is now open! You do not need to commit to the UO to register for housing. The earlier you sign up, the more options you will have when selecting a room.

Register for Housing

1. Once you have been offered admission to the UO, register for housing in the My Housing portal. 

2. Use the UO ID Login option and then register (create an account) on the My Housing portal using the 95# in the email you are sent within two weeks of being admitted. 

3. Sign your contract and pay the $350 initial housing payment and $50 non-refundable registration fee.

4. Research your housing and dining options.

5. Browse and request roommates starting in June in your My Housing portal.

6. Select your room! You will be assigned a room selection date and time based on you and your roommate's registration dates and if you are in a community.

All first-time, full-time students coming to UO directly from high school who have completed their residence hall registration will have a University Housing living space. If you do not see an available space, please check My Housing regularly.

Non-freshman students (which would include returning, transfer, exchange, visiting, and American English Institute students) starting at the UO this fall and looking to live on campus for 2024–25 academic year are invited to register for housing at Registration begins in mid-December. We anticipate spaces for non-first-time full-time students will be limited. There will be an interest wait list if capacity is reached. The interest wait list will be used as spaces become available, with priority based on earliest registration date. Those who have not been offered a residence hall assignment by August 15, 2024, will be asked if they would like to remain on the list.

The open room selection process will close July 31, 2024. After that, room assignments will be made for those who do not yet have a room assignment and will be viewable in My Housing.  

Frequently Asked Housing Registration Questions

Do I have to be committed to the UO in order to register for housing?

No, you can still be making your decision on whether or not to become a Duck. If your plans change, you can cancel your housing registration by June 1 and get a full refund of the initial housing payment. 

When am I assigned my room and roommate?

You will get to select your own room in July! Registering early will give you more options and priority when it comes time for room selection. You will be able to select any residence hall or room available at that time. 

Roommate browsing and requests opens in June. More information will be sent to you when we invite you to create your roommate profile in May. You can request someone you already know, browse roommates that match with you based on your answers to the lifestyle questions in the housing registration, or browse roommates based on a specific lifestyle question. 

Are first year students required to live on campus?

All first-year students at the UO live on campus. Living on campus for at least your first year is a significant advantage that contributes to your success at the University of Oregon. You will be part of a community and make connections with other students, faculty, and staff. Living on campus also connects you to services that support you as you transition to college life. Studies show that first-year full-time students who live on campus have higher GPAs, stay in school in higher numbers, and graduate faster.

If I am in an Academic Residential Community or Residential Community, does my roommate also have to be in that same community?

Yes, living in a community means your roommate must also be a part of that same community. 

Can I defer the $350 initial housing payment?

Students who qualify and choose to waive their admission application fee may also choose to defer their initial housing payment—this means the $350 initial housing payment will go to your fall term bill and may be covered by financial aid or scholarships.

For those who qualify, an option to defer will be included in the online payment registration process. Deferrals have the same financial commitment as payments and must follow the same cancellation guidelines. Please contact University Housing for more information.
