Apply for Housing: New to UP

The housing application is available to all new students who have confirmed enrollment at the University of Portland. Students receive login information for the student portal and the housing application from the Office of Admissions shortly after they confirm their enrollment. Students having difficulty logging into PilotsUP can contact the Office of Admissions at 888.627.5601.

The new student housing application opens December 1. The priority deadline is May 10; if you apply after this date, we may be unable to take your hall or roommate preferences into account when assigning your housing. All students who apply by May 10 have an equal chance of being assigned to one of their top halls. Roommates will be matched based on questions answered on the housing application; students may also request a specific roommate by name. Most students have between one and three roommates.

IMPORTANT: If you need accommodation for a disability in on-campus housing, you must submit your accommodation request form and disability documentation by May 10, 2017 for the fall 2017 semester. For further information please consult Accessible Education Services.

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

First-Time Freshmen

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

Transfer Students

Transfer students are not required to live on campus, but are welcome to apply for housing and will be given housing as space is available. PilotsUP portal access and the housing application become available to transfer students after they have confirmed their enrollment through the Office of Admissions.
