Live-On Policy and Exceptions

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.

OSU staff understands that in some instances, some students may need to petition for a qualifying exemption. 

The First Year Experience (FYE) Live-On Exemption Application is now available through a student’s MyUHDS page and will only be considered after a student completes the UHDS housing application.

Please note that the exemption request application will be available on March 1st at 2pm PST.
