Reserving a space to live on campus

Residence hall life adds a dynamic dimension to the experience that our residents enjoy while attending Western Oregon University.

The educational value derived from living with people of varied interests, backgrounds and ages offers a wide range of opportunities for personal growth and lifelong friendships. Coupled with the safe, convenient living environment that staff work hard to provide, living on-campus offers the ideal setting at a reasonable cost for students to pursue their educational goals from. 


We invite you to reserve your Space to live on-campus today!

University Housing is excited to announce that we will CONTINUE TO OFFER a $50 credit to new students who reserve their housing and pay the housing reservation fee! Students will receive a $50 credit on their account after they have signed their contract and move into University Housing for the term which they have reserved a space in.

Note: The credit will appear on student accounts the first term in which they live on campus. It will not be awarded to students who make a housing reservation and pay the fee but do not live on campus. This credit is for new incoming students only and does not apply to Family Housing applications.
