How to Apply for 2015-16 Housing

STEP 1: Set-up PUNet ID and Password

To start the process of applying for housing you will need to have activated your Pacific University account (PUNet ID).

For assistance with activating your account contact the University Information Services at 503-352-1500 or at

STEP 2: Submit Online Housing Application

Deposited students for the Fall semester will receive an email from the Housing Office in early May with information on how to submit the Housing Application.

Deposited students for the Winter or Spring semester will automatically be contacted by the Housing Office. Housing applications will be released beginning in early November.

  • Login to Residence using your PUNet ID and password.
  • Information collected is used by the Housing Office to determine your housing assignments and roommate(s).
  • New students who are applying for housing for Fall semester are strongly encouraged to submit the housing application by May 31.
  • Applications are continually processed after May 31 as new students are admitted and submit their enrollment deposit to the University Admission Office.

Please note:  We believe finding you the best roommate match is more important than placing you in a certain building or room type. Therefore we do not request this information from you.

STEP 3: Roommate Selection (Optional)

  • All new students who have submitted their housing application by May 31 will have an opportunity to choose a roommate. You will receive an email from the Housing Office on June 1 with further instructions. If you choose to participate you must complete this step by June 14.
  • Students who choose not to participate in this process will be assigned a roommate through an automated process.

STEP 4: Check your Pacific University email

  • New students for Fall semester will receive an email in mid-July informing them to login to their Residence account to view their room assignment and roommate(s).
