How Ducks Live

Whether you are a current resident or a prospective student, stay connected and learn about University Housing’s student-centered living-learning experiences and how to get the most out of your time in the residence halls.
Move-in day is almost here! Here are a few reminders to help make move-in day a success:
Review Move-In Information
Once logged into your My Housing portal, select the Moving In graphic on your My Assignment tab to view information about your check-in date and time.
Check-in will take place at the housing service center for your residence hall. Your service center information is on the My Assignment tab in My Housing. For early arrivals, there are no designated unloading zones and there are university parking areas and city parking areas throughout campus.
We are excited to share with you that the primary move-in days for fall 2022 are Thursday, September 22, and Friday, September 23! You will be assigned a move-in date and time by early September. Please do not book travel before you receive your assigned move-in date and time or ensure that it is easily changeable or refundable. Here is some additional information for you as you prepare for move-in.
We hope your spring term is off to a great start! While it may seem far away, sadly, moving out of the residence halls will be here in just eight short weeks. Here are some important things to know as you plan out the rest of the academic year:
You must move out of the residence halls within 24 hours of your last final, or by 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 10, 2022, whichever occurs first. Start planning now by reviewing your finals schedule for each class in order to coordinate your departure from campus.
You will sign up for a date and time in advance for your check-out on My Housing. Look for an email about your end of spring term plans in May which will include the checkout date and time signup.

Earlier today, a small fire in a resident’s room in Barnhart Hall required an evacuation of the building. We wanted to reach out and let you know that this occurred if you were not aware of the incident. Emergency personnel were on the scene and determined this fire was accidental and caused by a candle. At this time, there is no known further risk.
All residents have been cleared to enter the building and our facilities staff are working on cleaning up the incident in the affected room.
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the Eugene community, the University of Oregon is preparing for additional cases among students on campus. In response, for the safety and well-being of our students, and developed in coordination with Lane County Public Health, the UO is updating our COVID-19 isolation protocols.
For residence hall students who may need to isolate due to COVID-19, the UO will provide an isolation space on campus, or in a local hotel, to the extent possible. In the event that isolation spaces reach capacity, students living in residence halls who test positive will need to isolate in their rooms following the current UO COVID-19 exposure guidelines.
As an admitted student, an important next step is to register for housing and get ready for roommate browsing and room selection this summer.Register for Housing
The sooner you register for housing, the more options and priority you have for room selection. We encourage you to register for housing even if you are still deciding on becoming a Duck. Read our blog post on the housing registration process for more information!
All first-year students at the UO live on campus. Admitted students will get an email once they can log in and register for housing—this will be within two weeks of being admitted to the UO. The earlier you register, the more prioirity and options you have when selecting your room.
Also, you don’t have to be a first-year student to live on campus! If you are a returning student who is currently living in the residence halls, you can register for housing now and select your own room before any new students. There are many benefits to living on campus after your first year, learn more about living here next year.
