Live-On Policy

Policy Documents for the 2019-2020 academic year will be available March 2019.

As part of the First-Year Experience program, living on campus is an important component of a student’s first year at OSU-Cascades. On-campus living provides unique resources and connections that help students create a successful and well-rounded college experience. However, OSU-Cascades staff understands that in some instances, some students may need to petition for a qualifying exemption. Please review the policy, FAQs, and due dates below to assist you in this process.
