All freshmen at UO live on campus. At the UO, the halls are an extension of the academic campus: teaching and learning flows from the classroom into each student's room. In the halls you’ll find actual classrooms, academic support, and lively conversations about politics, scientific discoveries, or other current issues. Research shows that students who live on campus as freshmen achieve higher GPAs and graduate at a higher rate than those who don’t.

When you live on campus and you’ll find academic support, a community designed to meet your needs as a student, and hundreds of peers, some of whom will become your lifelong friends. You’ll also be a short walk away from classrooms, libraries, recreation facilities, and local shops, allowing you to get the most out of your life as a Duck.
