Experience of a Lifetime™


Plugged in on Campus Oregon State University is Powered by Orange. And one of the best ways you can draw from that energy is to live on campus. Our variety of housing options gives you more than a place to sleep. It makes you part of a community. It gives you a place to grow and make the college experience everything you want it to be. And it provides a strong support network to help you thrive. It’s where you can be independent, but not alone. You’ll meet people from around Oregon, the United States and the world — people like you and others who couldn’t be more different. You can live with an old friend or make a new one. Enjoy free programs in your residence hall that will encourage you, spark conversations or just entertain you. Have weekly dinners with your floor mates. Make it to class and campus events with a 10-minute walk (or less). Whether you’re traveling 50 or 5,000 miles for college, you’ll find yourself at home when you live on campus. Explore all our different choices to find the one that’s right for you.

Brandy Cordeiro and Shawna Fujita both thought it would be a better experience to live on campus for their first year at Oregon State. Coming from Hawaii, “we didn’t really know anyone,” Shawna says. Not even each other. Brandy knew she wanted to find a roommate who shared her culture. “I was looking for a roommate from Hawaii because we’d have more things in common,” she says. Using OSU’s Roommate Matching Network, the two found each other and bonded over their similar backgrounds and interest in Oregon State. They took a virtual tour of the residence halls, which Brandy says was “super helpful,” getting the suite-style room they wanted in Bloss Hall.

“We didn’t actually meet in person until START,” Shawna says. But once they met, the two found themselves getting along easily — even their parents liked each other. Shawna and Brandy have enjoyed taking advantage of multiple opportunities on campus. Shawna likes playing intramural sports — bowling, soccer and softball — while Brandy has appreciated the chance to experience new things. “You find your independence here by taking everything in,” Brandy says. The best part of having a roommate is having someone to talk to. “If you were by yourself you would be lonely,” Shawna says. “Very lonely,” Brandy agrees. They give credit to the Roommate Matching Network for finding such a good fit as roommates. “Who knows what we would have gotten,” Shawna says. “It has been perfect for us.”

Roommate Matching Network™ The freedom to pick your roommate You can decide who you’re going to live with well before you come to campus. You can ask to live with a friend you already know or meet someone new by using OSU’s unique Roommate Matching Network™. You can create a personal profile and browse through profiles of other students to find a good match, contact potential roommates online and arrange to meet before move-in day. Once you two have settled on living together, you’ve made your first friend – long before you ever get to campus. Make your selection by our priority deadline of June 1, 2012. If you choose not to use the Roommate Matching Network, we will assign your roommate based on your personal profile information. Meet other incoming students on the UHDS Facebook page: facebook.com/osu.uhds.

How to apply for housing

Step

1

Step

2

Get admitted to OSU and activate your online account. Apply for and gain admission to OSU at oregonstate.edu/admissions. Once you have been admitted (including OSU DPP and EOP), you’ll need to activate your ONID account, which serves as your university email address.

Go to onid.oregonstate.edu, select Sign up for ONID and follow the directions to activate your account.

Log in to myuhds.oregonstate.edu Select the application period for which you want to live on campus. All assignments are made based on the date of completed application. So the earlier you apply, the greater the chances of getting one of your top choices of residence halls.

Step

3

Select your specific preferences and requests. Now is the time to select your preferences, including roommate, using the Roommate Matching Network. Requests for assignment with a specific roommate, or to a particular hall or co-op, will be honored whenever possible, but are not guaranteed. Assignments are made by the date your completed online application is received, using such priorities as roommate choice, hall or co-op preference and room type desired. Preference is given to students requesting academic theme halls if 1) you are enrolled in the appropriate academic college and 2) your application is made before June 1. Your advanced tuition deposit (ATD) must be received by the university in order to be assigned on-campus housing. If you don’t have Internet access, call our office toll-free at 800-291-4192 for assistance in the application process.

Step

4

Submit your application. Your online application is not considered complete until you have agreed to all the terms and conditions on the final approval page. This will be the date your student account will be charged the $45 non-refundable application fee. This will also be the date used for room assignment priority. You’ll receive an email notification to your ONID account verifying your completed application has been received.

8


Step

5

Choose your room. In the spring, anyone with a submitted application can log in and choose a room in a hall or co-op. For the residence halls, you can select your specific room via an interactive floor plan. If you have already chosen a roommate, he or she will automatically be invited to select your room. By choosing OSU, you’ll be one of the first in your class to know your housing assignment.

Group Housing Selection Is there a group of people you’d like to live near? The group selection process allows you to create clusters of friends and acquaintances within hall communities by forming and joining groups within your chosen building. To create a group, you’ll need a name, description and building preference. Find more information on our website.

Priority Housing Selection If you select your room during the housing application process, that space will be reserved for you upon selection. For students who do not select a room, assignments will be made before July 1 when possible for applications received by June 1.

On-Campus Residences

Residence Halls

Our residence halls:

Residence Hall Staff

A residence hall is more than a 12 X 14 ft. room where you can rest your head in between classes. At OSU, a residence hall is a community. It’s a place where friendships, ideas and memories are created. All residence halls are conveniently located on the south, east and west areas of campus. Each features high-speed wireless Internet throughout the building.

A big part of residence hall living is making sure your needs are met beyond the classroom. We want our students to succeed at OSU. That’s why there are live-in staff members in each hall, including a Resident Assistant (RA) on each floor or wing and a Resident Director (RD) in each building. These standout upper-division or graduate students and professional staff prepare programs for residents and are on hand to offer assistance with issues from labs to laundry. They’re also available to help you achieve the incredible college experience you planned for.

Cooperative Houses There are four university-owned co-op houses on the east side of a campus. A cooperative is a large two- or three-story house with 38 to 64 members living together in a home-like environment. The or co-ops are democratically managed by their residents. Each house has a UHDS-trained director who lives in the house and helps advise the executive board. House members reduce living expenses by sharing work duties. Two to five students are usually assigned to a study room with a desk, closet and space for personal belongings. Shared sleeping rooms (called sleeping porches) with bunk beds are separate from the study rooms. All co-ops have television rooms, study areas and living room space. Most also have recreation areas. All are smoke-free environments. House members contract with their individual house for a meal plan. All co-ops have kitchens and hire a cook to prepare lunch and dinner each weekday. Weekend meals are assigned as a house duty to residents throughout the term. All members have kitchen privileges for preparing snacks and breakfast. Individual study rooms have local cable TV, telephone line service and data jacks for high-speed Internet access for each co-op member. Co-op student bills are paid directly to the house and cannot be charged to a student account. The bill varies by house, provided by house executive members to residents at the beginning of the term.

Student Family Housing at Orchard Court University apartment housing for students with families is available close to campus. Students with minor children (17 years old or younger), students with a spouse or partner, or single graduate students are eligible to apply.

Corinne Chun Education | Human Development and Family Sciences Aiea, O’ahu, Hawaii

When Corinne Chun came to Oregon State University, living on campus seemed like a natural choice. “I thought living on campus would be great,” Corinne said. “It’s convenient, it’s close to all my classes — everything is within walking distance.” Corinne continued living on campus through her senior year, working as a Resident Assistant (RA) in Finley Hall. Corinne says she has stayed in the residence hall because she enjoys being immersed in the college environment. “I love that opportunity to make new friends and interact with people,” she says.

oregonstate.edu/uhds

As an RA, Corinne served as a resource for residents in her hall when they have questions, need help with classes or just want to talk. “I’m there to support them and to help them when they need it,” she says. In addition to being close to classes, campus restaurants and resources like Dixon Recreation Center and the Valley Library, Corinne says living in a residence hall comes with a lot of other benefits, including being able to meet people with similar interests, activities and majors. “I definitely think living on campus provides the best experience for you to interact with people and to really just feel like you’re in college,” Corinne says.

Educational Living Environments

Studies continually show that students who live on campus, thrive on campus. You’ll be encouraged to succeed by living with your peers and getting support from professional staff and faculty members who live and/or work in the halls. Students who live on campus are more likely to

• Know their professors. • Feel more comfortable talking with professors and administrators. • Generally feel more connected to OSU.

18

More than 83 percent of our on-campus residents return to OSU after their first year. That’s a higher percentage than those who do not live on campus. UHDS sponsors a number of programs to help students achieve academic success. Each hall also hosts a writing and math tutor weekly. In addition, we offer a variety of events during the year, such as Faculty Fellow Dinners, the Faculty Connections program, Academic Recognition events and various workshops, seminars and events that enhance students’ connections to their academic success.


Austin Entrepreneurship Program (AEP)–Weatherford Residential College With a rich tradition of innovation, creativity and originality, historic Weatherford Residential College is the home of the Austin Entrepreneurship Program (AEP). At the core of this unique community is a visionary group of self-starters consisting of 290 students from diverse disciplines, visiting professionals, industry leaders and a live-in entrepreneurship professor. With its distinctive case rooms, executive suites for visiting entrepreneurs, a faculty apartment and most importantly, incubator spaces, Weatherford Residential College is a fitting environment for potentially creating the businesses and organizations of the future. The Weatherford Residential College is a comfortable and exciting environment where residents live, dine, work and dream together, sharing a common interest in entrepreneurial adventure.

Community Service Learning

International Experience

Bloss Hall has community service-learning, interdisciplinary theme in which the hall staff work with residents to create a compelling living and learning experience with the community. Community servicelearning is a concept that promotes responsible citizenry, and it fully integrates experiential, hands-on learning activities with a student’s academic and social experience.

The International Living-Learning Center is designed for international students as well as those interested in the world community. Student programs and events encourage communication, involvement and positive community interactions, with a focus on foreign languages, cultural studies, study abroad and connections with campus international programs. Domestic students living in the hall are paired with an international roommate.

Students learn to make the connection between belief in helping others and acting to influence social change in the hall, around campus, off campus and globally.

Whether you are enrolled in the entrepreneurship academic program or just interested in getting involved in innovative activities, consider living in Weatherford Residential College. All majors are welcome. All residents are charged a College of Business fee for AEP participation, which is incorporated into the rate of the room (Approx. $300 per term).

oregonstate.edu/uhds

Sandy Neubaum Faculty in Residence — Weatherford Hall College of Business

Sandy Neubaum doesn’t actually live in Weatherford Hall. It just seems that way. As the associate director for the Austin Entrepreneurship Program (AEP), which is housed in Weatherford, Neubaum describes her role as supporting the living-learning community of 290 students. That means helping them determine what they’re excited about and putting them in the position to act on it. “College is about finding out who you are,” she says. “It’s laying the foundation so you can spend your life loving what you do.” Neubaum says entrepreneurship isn’t just for business; it’s a way of approaching your college career. “OSU is rich with opportunities; take advantage of them all,” she says. “If you develop those skills in college, it will follow you the rest of your life.”

22

Most AEP students living in Weatherford are freshman, and Neubaum encourages all freshmen to start out living on campus. She believes it gives students a strong support network, helping them build connections within the OSU community. “Living on campus helps you find your home on campus,” she says. As faculty-in-residence, much of Neubaum’s job is simply being available — as a teacher, adviser and mentor. And she can draw from her own experience. “I knew as soon as I stepped into a classroom that I wanted to teach. When I came to OSU, I knew this was the best place for me to be,” she says. “I tell students to listen to your gut, listen to your head and follow your heart. That will serve you well throughout your life.”


Award-Winning Dining on Campus Within steps of any residence hall, you’ll find Ivy Award-winning restaurants, convenience stores and cafes. The Ivy Award recognizes Oregon State for offering the same delicious, high-quality fare found in some the country’s finest restaurants. Our 18 restaurants are located within five locations: Arnold Dining Center, the International Living-Learning Center, Marketplace West, McNary Dining Center and Weatherford Residential College.

During the academic year we offer room changes weeks three - nine of each term.

Rights and Responsibilities The rationale for most UHDS rules are based on the four Compelling Community Interest principles outlined in Judicious Leadership for Residence Hall Living by Forrest Gathercoal. (1991, Caddo Gap Press). These principles apply to all students with regard to their rights and responsibilities on campus.

Compelling Community Interests Health and Personal Safety Health and personal safety policies are designed to help protect students against incidents or behavior that may jeopardize the physical, mental, emotional health and/ or safety of either the residential community or individual students. That requires limiting certain individual rights for the common good of the community.

Property, Property Loss or Damage While the Oregon State campus has a relatively low incidence of crime, it is important to remember that no community can be totally risk-free from incidents that cause property loss and damage. All members of the community share the responsibility to care for and protect both common and personal property.

Serious Disruption of the Educational Environment For a large number of people to live together successfully, each member of the community has a responsibility to respect the needs and rights of others. Rules are established and enforced to support a successful campus living environment, as well as for the efficient, effective operation of residence halls, cooperative houses and family housing units. Please remember that you are responsible not only for your own behavior but also for the behavior of your guests. You and your guests must abide by the community standards to protect your rights, as well as the rights of others, to make on-campus living a positive aspect of your college experience.

Legitimate Educational Purpose It’s common to ask in student government, staff training and certain student conduct situations, “Why are you here?” Generally, the answer is, “To get a degree.” Based on this fundamental premise, anything not

directly or indirectly contributing to the accomplishment of this goal goes against the legitimate educational purpose of the university and of the housing system. UHDS policies and programs are designed to support the university’s educational mission.
