University Housing performs regular checks every term to verify students' eligibility to move into and remain in University Housing. If a resident does not meet eligibility standards their contract will be cancelled and they will be required to move out. If you believe you may encounter eligibility issues, please discuss the situation with the Housing Office as soon as possible to understand your obligations and receive advice and assistance in resolving the problem

Financial Eligibility

In order to be eligible to live in University Housing, residents must have a prior term PSU account balance of under $100, as well as consistently meet payment deadlines as set forth by the University. Failing to meet these deadlines will result in a registration hold, thus preventing the student from meeting academic eligibility. If a student's PSU account is currently in collections, they will automatically be considered ineligible for University Housing. Prospective residents with a prior term balance of $100 or more may not receive a housing assignment or be allowed to move in.

Academic Eligibility

All residents (except for non-student spouses, domestic partners, or dependents) must be registered at Portland State University for the minimum credit requirements in each term of the academic year. Undergraduate and Post-Baccalaureate students must be enrolled in at least 8 credits and Graduate students must be in enrolled in at least 4 credits during Fall, Winter, and Spring terms. Students must meet University payment deadlines to avoid registration holds.
