Residence Life: Current Student Housing Application
Current Student Housing for 2015-2016 (returning to campus)
Any student currently attending classes at the University of Portland, who wants to live on campus next year, must apply online and pay an application deposit by the corresponding deadline.
- For traditional residence halls, the online application should be completed by February 15, 2015.
- For those currently living Haggerty & Tyson halls and wishing to return, and those wishing to be pulled into an apartment with current residents, the online application should be completed and deposit paid by February 1, 2015, to be eligible for priority pre-placement. (At least half of your group must be returning Haggerty & Tyson residents to participate in pre-placement.)
- For all other upperclass students wishing to live in Haggerty, Tyson, or a University-owned rental house, the online application should be completed and deposit paid by February 15, 2015.
Please note: This application is for current UP students who live on or off campus, or are currently studying abroad in a UP program. New to UP students, or those re-admitted to UP, should not use this application. Please see either the New to UP or Re-Admitted pages.
There is a $100 housing application deposit to be paid to the Office of Student Accounts. The application deposit is due by February 15, 2015, or February 1 for those seeking Haggerty & Tyson pre-placement. Upon completion of a housing contract, this money will be applied to the student's fall semester room charge. The application deposit will be forfeited should the student not sign a housing contract or cancel their contract. The application deposit will be refunded if housing is unavailable. You may pay the deposit in person at the Office of Student Accounts in Waldschmidt Hall, or online at Deposit Payments.

Current Student Housing FAQs
On or after December 5, visit this page to find the link that takes you to the PilotsUP log-on to access the application. Pay the $100.00 application deposit either online or at Student Accounts, which is required for your housing application to be valid.
The deposit is "earnest money" and also provides a more accurate picture of how many spaces to reserve for our continuing students.
If you take a room on campus, your deposit is applied to your fall room charge.
If you do not take a room on campus, or cancel one you have taken, your deposit is forfeited.
You may cancel your application before the corresponding deadline and receive a refund of your deposit. You will forfeit your deposit if you cancel after the corresponding deadline, or if you fail to accept offered housing during the processes. A signed contract is legally binding, and can only be cancelled via the petition process. Generally, the deposit is forfeit when a contract is cancelled.
You do not identify a roommate or housemate on the application, but will attend selection with your room or housemates. You will all pick the room/apartment/house at the same time when the person in your group with the best lottery number is called.
If you are looking to live in a traditional residence hall, you can either attend selection with a roommate or by yourself. If you want to live in Haggerty or Tyson Hall or in a UP-owned rental house, you do not need to specify your roommates when you apply but will need to get a group together before selection day, as we ask that an entire unit be filled at once. Two resources we provide for finding roommates are the forum on the Current Student portal and the UP Facebook Housing group.
You should designate a proxy on your application, or send a signed permission note with them to selections. A proxy acts in your place, and their signature is as good as yours for this purpose.
Yes, all students on and off campus are encouraged to attend an information meeting in one of the residence halls the week of January 18. Any student may attend any meeting. You may also post questions to our Facebook page.
If you are a rising junior or senior seeking to live in Haggerty & Tyson or a UP Rental House, you will attend selection night in the Chiles Center on February 23, 2015, 5 to 7 p.m. Everyone in the group you plan to live with must attend or designate a proxy. Prior to selection each person in your group will be sent a lottery number and a selection time. Attend at the earliest time assigned to someone in your group and check in. The name of the person in your group with the best lottery number will be called, and your group can come forward to select housing.
If you are seeking to live in a traditional residence hall, look out for information about that particular hall's selection date and time, which will take place February 28 or March 1. You will attend selection at the hall or designate a proxy to go in your place. Residents returning to their hall will check in and indicate whether they are planning to room with other returning resident(s) or if they will be pulling in students from other halls or off campus. If you are trying to move to another hall without being pulled in by a current resident, you will check in and be asked to wait until all returning residents have selected housing.
If you wish, you may attend one hall's selection and, if you are unable to secure housing in that hall, attend a different hall's selection. However, you may not select housing "tentatively" or ask hall staff to "hold" a room for you. Once you select housing in a hall, you will sign a contract committing to live there for the next year.
Selections are based on random lottery numbers within a projected class year for the upcoming fall semester. If you stay in your current community or have someone pulling you into a new one, to-be-seniors staying will be the first group to select; to-be-seniors pulling someone into their community will be the second group; to-be-juniors staying the third group, to-be-juniors pulling the fourth group, etc. The last groups to select will be those wishing to move into a community without anyone pulling them in.
Lottery numbers are sent to all applicants via UP e-mail prior to selections.
Yes. Students wishing to pull a roommate into their community will select after those in their class year who are not pulling someone in from outside the community.
Yes, but you will select after all those returning to that community. You will select according to the class year system of to-be-seniors selecting first; then to-be-juniors, etc.
Haggerty/Tyson and UP rental house selections are held before traditional residence hall selections. The application gives you the choice to return to the traditional residence hall process if you do not get into upperclass housing.
The suites may be selected by no less than 4 students. If a quad grouping would like their friends to be able to select the adjoining room, a courtesy hold may be placed on that room for the other students. The hold will stand unless all other suites have been selected and a group with a better lottery number than those it is being held for wants it.
Your group will enter the Haggerty/Tyson "apartment" and UP "rental house" selections according to the occupancy and type of housing you want. All members of your group, or their proxy, must be present at selection. The group will select when the person in your group with the best lottery number is called.
Groups may change occupancy and housing type prior to entering selections, or may exit selections to regroup and re-check in. You may not change once you have checked in, or when you are trying to select housing.
Each Haggerty/Tyson apartment has at least one double bedroom. Your group should know who will be roommates in a double room and who will be taking a single room.
Students who are graduating at the end of fall semester or studying abroad spring semester may sign a fall-only contract.
Students who will be studying abroad fall semester will need to either pair up with a spring study abroad student to create full-year occupancy, or wait until selections end to see if any spring-only spaces are available. These students may also forego this process and e-mail Residence Life after the upcoming fall semester begins to apply for spring housing. The spring 2016 application deadline is November 15, 2015.
Contact the Office of Residence Life to be placed on the waitlist for remaining spaces.
