Graduate Student Housing

Graduate Student Options

Graduate students are welcome to live in any of our nine housing buildings.  We have many options to choose from including small sleeper units, studios, and one bedroom units. Most of our graduate students live in Blumel Hall for its apartment style feel but can live in any of our buildings.

Eligibility requirements for graduate students to live on campus are as follows: 

  • Fully admitted to graduate studies in a Masters or Doctoral program

  • Be registered for and maintain a minimum of 4 graduate credits



Our housing rates are competitive with—and usually lower than—rates from private housing off campus. In addition, living on campus with PSU Housing is a "turnkey" service. That means you pay one fee to us and we take care of many of the life maintenance issues you would have to deal with if you lived off campus. This turnkey approach frees your time for what is most important as a graduate student—time for your research and studies and time for rest in between. You will not find this kind of service off campus.


Staff Assistance

In addition, we have staff on hand who can provide any manner of assistance—from finding your way around campus to getting a maintenance issue resolved right away. Again, you cannot find this kind of service off campus. Indeed, all of our efforts go toward providing you with the service you need so you can focus on your academic goals.

We encourage you to consider living on campus and believe doing so will enhance your graduate experience at PSU. For more information about housing options, please contact our office at 503-725-4375 or email us at
