Residence Life: New to UP Housing Application
First-Time FreshmanThe housing application is available via the student portal to all new students who have confirmed enrollment at the University of Portland. Students receive access to the student portal from the Office of Admissions shortly after they confirm their enrollment.
The new student housing application opens March 1. The sooner you submit an application, the greater your chances of receiving an assignment in one of your preferred residence halls. The priority deadline is May 10; if you apply after this date, we may be unable to take your roommate preferences into account when assigning your housing.
All first-time freshman students must live on campus, and must submit a housing application. If you are a freshman student age 20 years or older at the beginning of spring semester, for housing purposes, you are considered a non-traditional freshman and are not subject to the residency requirement.
First-time freshman students may live off campus only if they live at home with a parent or guardian and within 30 miles of the campus. To request an exemption, complete the Request for Exemption from First-Year Residency Requirement and fax proof of residency to 503-943-8081 or e-mail to email@example.com.
IMPORTANT: If you need accommodation for a disability in on-campus housing, you must submit your accommodation request form and disability documentation by May 1, 2015 for the fall 2015 semester. For further information please consult the Office for Students with Disabilities.
If you have any specific (non-ADA) concerns about living on campus or your housing assignment, please contact the Office of Residence Life and we will be happy to assist you. The Office of Residence Life can be reached at (503) 943-7205 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
