Bend Living Guide


Bend consistently ranks as one of the brightest and best places to live anywhere in the U.S. As you make the transition to living off campus, use this guide to learn more about tenant rights and responsibilities, along with OSU-Cascades and Bend community resources.

Rental Process

Are you a first-time renter? Are you unaware of your renter’s rights and responsibilities? Are you unsure of how to properly “adult”? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then you have come to the right place.

The Bend Living Guide breaks down the rental process into five easy-to-follow steps with resources along the way to help you live more responsibly, manage a budget, and be a better neighbor. Signing a lease agreement and renting a home comes with increased responsibilities. It’s important to be proactive to make the rental process easier for yourself and to help maintain a safe and livable community.
