Your Home on Campus
As you think about where you want to live on campus, you may want to learn more about the communities, room types, and residence halls at the University of Oregon as well as the costs, which are determined by the type of room and meal plan you select.
Living on campus is a great way to make friends and get involved. Not only are you making friends and memories that will last a lifetime, you are creating a foundation for success, connecting with faculty, and transitioning to college life.
Once you have been admitted to the UO, you can register for housing. You will want to learn about the different academic residential communities on campus as well as the room types and the different residence halls on campus. This information will help you fill out your housing registration.
First-year students at the University of Oregon live in the residence halls. First-time, full-time freshmen from the US have higher GPAs, higher retention rates, higher graduation rates, and faster graduation times when they spend their first academic year living in University Housing at the University of Oregon.
All students are welcome and encouraged to live on campus at the University of Oregon. Transfer students find that it is a great way to learn about campus and get involved.
International students live on campus for their first year at the university. American English Institute (AEI) students should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance in registering for housing.
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 2023–24 academic year are invited to register for housing at housing.uoregon.edu/myhousing. Registration begins in mid-December (current residents will be notified by email). 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 availabe, with priority based on earliest registration date. Those who have not been offered a residence hall assignment by August 15, 2023, will be asked if they would like to remain on the list.
After your first year on campus, if you want to live on campus again, you can sign up on my housing to keep your current room or select from any available room, including the apartment-style residence hall. You might also consider university apartments. Studying on campus over the summer? No worries, there is summer housing available. Studying abroad? Only pay for the terms you live on campus.

You have many room types to choose from at the University of Oregon. About 80 percent of the rooms available on campus are double rooms, but there are also triple rooms, single rooms, and suite-style rooms available. When you register for housing, we’ll ask you to give us your preferences for each room type.
Meal plans are included for all students living on campus. University Housing offers five meal plans so you can find one that fits you best.
Meal plans can be used at our 14 dining venues. Meal plans also include $50 of Duck Bucks per term that can be used for goods, services, food, and beverages across campus at locations such as the copy center, libraries, and the EMU student union.
Carson Limited meal plan is only accepted at Carson Dining.
