Living on campus is one of the best ways for international students to make American friends, adjust to life in the US, and be part of a fun and vibrant community at Oregon State University. All first-year students at OSU live on campus, making it a welcoming, supportive, and exciting place to be. Research has demonstrated that students who live on campus have higher GPAs and become more involved with campus activities and clubs. Students also enjoy the convenience and access to additional support services. Every effort is made to place INTO OSU international students with American roommates or suitemates if desired.
First-year students who enroll in an undergraduate degree-seeking program at Oregon State University within one year of high school graduation, regardless of class standing, must live on campus for the full academic year (fall, winter and spring terms). This includes all students with Undergraduate Pathway in their study plan.
