First-year experience

As part of the First-Year Experience program, living on campus is an important component of a student’s first year at OSU-Cascades. Living in the FYE community provides unique resources and connections that help students create a successful and well-rounded college experience. More information about First Year Experience

Sophomore and above experience

While first-year students are required to live on campus, a growing number of Sophomore and Above students find equal value and benefits from living on campus. To further accommodate students who are older than our traditionally-aged first year students, we offer Sophomore and Above communities. More information about Sophomores and Above

Honors College program

Community is about more than buildings. It's about the people and the environment around you. Honors College (HC) residents are surrounded by like-minded students who appreciate a healthy balance of peace and quiet mixed with inspiring academic activities and stimulating social experiences.

Graduate housing

All room types are open to graduate students but many choose to live in apartment-style suites, complete with kitchenette. More information about Graduate Housing
