Campus Life
Choose Convenience and Community!

By July, most students have finalized their housing arrangements for the fall. Residence halls open for returning students on September 2. (For new students, the halls open on August 29.) If your student is eligible to live off campus, he or she may have discovered that the Portland rental market is a bit tight. Get reacquainted with the on-campus opportunities and benefits available to your student.

The Campus Living staff is happy to discuss the on-campus options and application process with your student.
