New Student Contracts Are Still Being Accepted For 2017-2018!


Thank you to everyone who completed their new student contracts by May 1. We are currently working to get housing assignments out so please be checking your email frequently.

Freshman Students: We currently have limited space available for freshman. Students applying now for housing should be open to any community option to best ensure a fall housing assignment. You can learn more about our assignment and overflow housing policies online.

Transfer Students: We currently have limited availability for 17-18. We have availability in our modern double furnished units, which includes 1 bedroom units in Blumel and studio options in Broadway & Stephen Epler Halls. Single units are no longer available and in order to secure housing we encourage students to select they are open to any furnished double unit.  

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

Fall Move-In

Fall move in will take place on Thursday, September 21 and Friday, September 22. Please check the move-in guide to review check in times and procedures, including where to park. If you are on campus for orientation or a visit this summer, we highly recommend obtaining your PSU ID card. You will need this card to check in, gain residence hall access and use the dining hall. We can't wait to see you!

Housing Tours

No tours available: June 14 - June 21, July 3 & 4, and the week of September 18th.

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.
