Housing Resources

Finding housing is a primary concern for anyone coming to a new place.  Here you will find links to resources and descriptions of common types of housing and housing-related terminology. 

On-Campus Housing Options

Scholar Housing Program (Corvallis)

Scholar housing is available to visiting scholars, researchers, and interns year-round through our Residential Conferences office on a short-term or longer-term basis. They offer a variety of guest suites and residence hall rooms at Oregon State University for visitors either on a short-term or longer-term basis. Accompanying family members not eligible. Please direct questions of eligibility to the Residential Conferences office at scholarhousing@oregonstate.edu or (541) 737-9195.

Hatfield Marine Science Center Housing (Newport)

HMSC housing is only for college students, instructors, and researchers. Reserve space as soon as possible, as apartments fill up quickly. Furnished apartment units with complete kitchens, laundry facilities, mail service, and parking. Accompanying family members not eligible.

Oregon State University Extension Locations (Oregon wide)

Your main point of contact for housing will be your OSU sponsoring professor and department contact.

Temporary Housing

If you plan to live in off-campus housing, you should expect to spend several days locating and settling in to an apartment or room in a house. The Scholar Housing Program offers short-term stays while you find something more permanent, or the Crossroads Three-Day Homestay Program is a 3-day homestay program for new international visitors to Corvallis which gives new arrivals a ‘soft landing’ in Corvallis and hosts help you to get started in your new life at OSU. 

Finding a month-to-month apartment can unfortunately be difficult in Corvallis and short-term contracts are usually more expensive than a regular contract. You may contact the property managers to see if they would consider a month-to-month contract.
