Still deciding where to live next year? Given the growing need for more affordable on-campus housing, UHDS has increased the popular triple room options for the 2013-14 academic year.
More triple rooms will be available in Buxton, Cauthorn, Hawley, Poling, Sackett, Wilson (4th floor) and Weatherford halls, as well as triples and quadruple rooms in McNary hall.
Specific rate information on this low-cost option is available on the UHDS rates page: http://oregonstate.edu/UHDS/rates
Apply for housing at myuhds.oregonstate.edu.
If you have any questions during the process, please contact University Housing & Dining Services by calling 541-737-4771 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Effective Fall 2013, Reserve Officer Training Corps will once again encourage its cadets and midshipmen to live in Finley Hall on the south side of OSU’s campus. The change, announced by University Housing & Dining Services this week, is an update to previous plans that had indicated part of Sackett Hall would be used for a second year for ROTC.
This community is designed for students who would like to live with other ROTC students who maintain the same rigorous ROTC schedule. Finley Hall is also conveniently located near several ROTC campus facilities.
For new students that requested Sackett with the ROTC building option on their Fall 2013 housing application, UHDS automatically updated the selection to Finley ROTC.
New students are welcome to revisit and update building preferences in the online housing application at any time. UHDS also encourages new students to communicate with potential roommates about the change before new student room selection begins May 20. Students can check the important application dates or their MyUHDS to determine their exact day for room selection.
Any returning residents (upperclassmen) who plan to live in the ROTC community are encouraged to make a room selection change, if necessary, by April 30.
For questions, please contact the UHDS housing office at 541-737-4771 or email@example.com.
[Corvallis Gazette-Times, March 21, 2013] — The Corvallis Planning Commission unanimously passed Oregon State University’s proposal for a new residence hall Thursday night.
The vote came at the end of a three-hour meeting that included some contentious testimony from residents concerned about parking and traffic.
OSU hopes to build a residence hall that would house up to 300 students on what is now a parking lot whose boundaries are Southwest Adams Avenue, Southwest Washington Avenue, Southwest 13th Street and Southwest 14th Street.
The proposal required city approval because it represented an adjustment to OSU’s master plan. The commission also passed a recommendation on a Land Development Code text amendment that must accompany the master plan adjustment.

[KLCC, March 18, 2013] — Oregon State University plans to build a new residence hall on what’s now a parking lot. The $30 million building would provide housing for 300 students.
Oregon State is looking at a long term need for more on-campus housing. It’s recently adopted a policy requiring traditional first year students– aged 18 and 19– to live on campus, with some exceptions. Tom Scheuermann is Director of University Housing and Dining Services. He says enrollment is increasing.
