All students must be admitted to PSU before they can apply for housing. 

Housing Tours

Housing Tours take place Monday through Friday and depart from the University Welcome Center (UWC) Office at 1:30pm (see Ondine, Broadway and Blumel halls). Please register through campus visits.

Additionally, two campus tours, which include viewing a room in Broadway, are offered daily at 9:50am and 3:00pm from the New Student Programs Office.

Large group tours outside of traditional tour times are subject to staff availability with priority given to high school groups.

For group requests, please email housing@pdx.edu with date, time and number of guests you are looking to accommodate.

Building Updates

Blumel Hall received a GOLD level LEED certification! 

Portland State University has closed St. Helen's as a residence hall for the 2018-2019 academic year. While the building has served the PSU residential community well for many years, the building is in need of updating. 

St. Helen's reopen for the 2019-2020 academic year and will be home to our new Second Year Experience program. Students moving in for fall 2018 will have priority as our inaugural class.
