Where You'll Live

Make yourself at home in our state-of-the-art residence hall. Take in high ceilings and big picture windows that open to swaying pondersa pines. Here, you'll make friends that last a lifetime.

What You'll Do

Life outside of class is important. Plan and lead an outdoor trip. Gain leadership skills with student government. Compete on our mountain biking team. There's a club with your name on it.

Best Outdoor Town

Bend is minutes from world-class skiing at Mt. Bachelor, and that’s just the beginning. Central Oregon is known for an extensive mountain bike trail system, camping at high mountain lakes, and Smith Rock, a rock-climbing mecca.

Dine at the Beaver Dam

The Beaver Dam dining hall is a favorite gathering place for students and faculty. Talented chefs create daily specials like stir-fry, grain bowls, sushi and pasta; plus there's a soup and salad bar, pizza station, grill and even kombucha on tap.

Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dining choices are always available.
