The University of Oregon has an enrollment of approximately 21,000 students every year. The large enrollment of students indicates a large demand for student housing on- and off-campus. These housing choices vary from university dormitories, apartments, duplexes, townhouses and single family homes. These housing choices are located a few blocks away from campus often with property management contacts advertised. The following is a list with links to university housing and housing related tips to find accommodation. The PPPM department suggests setting aside time before the academic year starts to find housing and settle in.
