New Student Contract Now Available for 2017-2018

New first year and new transfer students beginning fall 2017 can complete contracts online. Students can complete contracts while they are waiting for an admission decision. 

Housing Availability Update

New Spring Term Students: We are currently on a waitlist for all single units for Spring term. There are a limited number of Broadway Studios and Modern One-Bedroom units available for new incoming transfer students. Information about our assignment process and waitlist is available. Space is available for incoming first year students in Ondine with space available in Broadway.  

Summer 2017 Contracts are also available for students looking to be on campus for summer or summer session classes. 

Room Selection

Room Selection is now available for current residents who wish to complete contracts for Summer 2017 and the 2017-2018 Academic Year.  

Housing Tours

Housing Tours take place Monday through Friday and start in the Housing Office at 1:30pm (see Ondine, Broadway and Blumel). 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 in the Academic and Student Recreation Center (ASRC) Room 101.

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 with date, time and number of guests you are looking to accommodate.

Construction Updates

Portland State University has decided to close Stratford as a residence hall, starting July 2017. While the building has served the PSU residential community well for many years, the building is 90 years old and is nearing the end of its lifespan. The building will be temporarily repurposed as office space during the Neuberger Hall renovation project.

The building is set to be demolished in 2019.
