Whether you spent last year here on campus with us or are transferring to Western Oregon University from another school, we are glad to have you here! What ARE the opportunities, advantages and choices that await you as an upper-division student choosing to live on campus?

Centrally sited on the beautiful campus of Western Oregon University, you will find a full range of options for on-campus living while attending school here. Take advantage of the convenience, safety and the value that living on campus can provide for you.

You will meet new people, experience new ideas and face new challenges – but with these challenges will come success – both socially and academically. In addition, you will have the opportunity as an on-campus resident to develop leadership skills and influence on-campus living policies through involvement in hall government, HDAC (Housing and Dining Advisory Committee) and the Residence Hall Association.
