3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have not been in the dorms, however my experience with on campus student housing (apartments and houses) has been a headache. They only give you two chances to accept an offer from them before they remove you from the wait list (which is over 2 years long). I specified that I wanted to live in a house on campus, they called me with two apartment offers. They then told me that if I rejected the apartment offer that they would remove me from the wait list and I would have to re apply. I understand that oncampus housing is very popular, but they are not meeting the requests of students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As I know, the price of housing which nears the campus is kinda high.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: If you are a freshmen, I highly recommend that you live on campus. This is a great way to meet and make friends, learn about the school, find out about parties and social things, find people to go with to these things (and class, lunch, study with, etc.), and help make the process of freshmen year less difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For undergrad, dorm experience is almost essential in my opinion. It adds to the college experience and gets people to become more social. There are many options so you can choose accordingly to price and proximity to your prospective college or major classrooms that you'll be in.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: GSH is insanely overpriced, especially considering that it feels more "normal" than some of the older dorms. $15,000 a year is more than the cost of tuition.

The University of Oregon has nine different dormitories that cater to a range of needs and budgets. From the large rooms and private bathrooms of Barnhart Hall to the Bean complex, which is affectionately referred to as the "bad" dorm, you'll find many options in campus housing. The UO also provides a placement service to provide different environments for different interests, such as 24-hour quiet floors, substance-free floors, and so on. Although students recommend Barnhart and Carson over other dorms, the friendships and experiences that occur in the tight living quarters of places like Bean and Walton are the ones that stick with you over time.

UO always falls short in dorm space, so students should apply early for assured placement. This also means that you're not guaranteed housing for later years, so enjoy the conveniences of dorm life while they last. You should definitely spend your first year in the dorms because this is one of the best places to meet people and make friends. It is an unforgettable college experience. With so many different choices of rooms and communities, it's largely up to you to make your experience with campus housing what you want it to be.
