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 ponderosa pines. Here, you'll make friends that last a lifetime.

What You'll Do

Life outside of class is important. Gain leadership skills with student government. Build a car using solar technology. Sculpt or throw a clay pot. There's a club with your name on it.

We Love Bend

Bend is minutes from world-class skiing at Mt. Bachelor, and that’s just the beginning. From BendFilm to Winterfest to First Friday Art Walks, Bend is home to a thriving arts community.

Explore with Cascades Adventures



You can explore all Bend has to offer with Cascades Adventures, our student-led outdoor trips program. Summit the South Sister, camp under the stars or float the Deschutes River with a new group of friends.



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.
