How to Apply for Pacific University Housing

Living in campus housing offers an unparalleled experience to be part of a vibrant and diverse community, where every day brings new opportunities to connect, grow, and have fun! We look forward to helping you feel at home here at Pacific University.

How to Complete your Housing Application

The Academic Year 24-25 Housing Application is open new students! Housing applications are due by June 14, 2024, though we recommend that you sign up as soon as you are able.

Shortly after you have deposited and set up your PUNet ID and login, you can log into eRezlife to complete your housing application, indicate roommate preferences and submit your housing contract. Click here for a step-by-step guide for how students can apply for housing and make roommate groups. 

Application steps:

  1. By June 14: Submit your housing application and contract via eRezlife
  2. By June 24: If you want to match yourself with a roommate, set up your RoomeeZ profile and search for a roommate. Alternatively, if you already know another new student you'd like to live with, you can exchange emails and match with them directly.

First year students (and many second year students) are placed in Cascade Hall, McCormick Hall, or Walter Hall. Upperclassmen are typically placed in Burlingham Hall, Gilbert Hall, and Vandervelden Court.

Current students can participate in the Pick Your Place room selection process by submitting an application in by early March.

Housing & Dining Contract

Before a student submits their housing application, they will be required to agree to the terms and conditions of the housing and dining contract. After submitted the application, they will be sent a link to the contract via their Pacific email. We encourage students and families read this agreement to understand the various terms and conditions of living in college-provided housing.

Accommodations for Student with Disabilities

The Office of Accessibility & Accommodation (OAA) provides reasonable accommodations in campus housing to students with disabilities. 

Students with new housing accommodation requests should register with OAA and submit disability documentation to the OAA office. Information about how to register and submit documentation can be found here.

Roommate and Room Assignment Information

In late June and early July, Campus Living will review all incoming student housing applications, make room assignments and match roommates. As this is a significant task, this will take several weeks to complete. Students can expect to receive their room assignment and roommate(s) information in mid-July.
