Housing & Maintenance


For maintenance issues please contact a Residence Life Staff person by calling 503.729.4150 or the Office of Student Affairs at 503.517.1007. DO NOT contact maintenance directly. Contacting Residence Life guarantees you the request will be processed most efficiently.


Laundry facilities are available in Smith’s Lower C and Lower B halls, Warman Hall, Tabor Terrace Apartments, Division Street Apartments and Saxon Apartments and 5-plex. House residents are responsible for their own laundry facilities.

Common areas

Common areas are meant to be used first and foremost for academic endeavors but may also be used for entertainment reasons. Cable is available in both the Lower C Smith and Warman Lounges. If you would like to reserve an evening for a special event, please contact the Office of Student Affairs. The Lower B Smith Lounge is for studying purposes only. If you would like to reserve the Lower B Conference Room for a special event, please contact the Office of Student Affairs.


Parking is limited on campus. There are two parking lots available for Residence Hall residents. The upper parking lot by Gotham Hall and the lower gravel lot next to the Library. Apartment residents are not assigned a parking space but are given priority in their specific parking area. Parking permits and area specific stickers can be obtained from the Office of Student Affairs. This specific sticker will be the only way to identify that a car is parked in its designated area. Vehicles parked in the lot without said sticker will be subject to ticketing.


All utilities are included in the housing price. Large dumpsters are located in each apartment complex. There are also dumpsters in the Gotham Hall parking lot and in the gravel parking lot for students living in Smith and Warman halls.


Each room and residency has high speed internet. A majority of campus is covered by wireless internet including most housing facilities.


Limited storage is available in the Residence Halls and also in the Apartment complexes. Please inquire about specifics from the Office of Student Affairs

Vending machines

A variety of snacks and beverages are available for purchase in the Smith and Warman lounges.
