The new residence hall on Willamette Boulevard will open in two phases: August 19 for Wing B (Willamette side) and late October for Wing A (Portsmouth side). To accommodate this timeline, the Office of Residence Life has developed a plan to ensure all students have housing. Wing A has a total of 92 students, 48 of whom are returning and 44 who are incoming students. With a first-year student residency requirement, all incoming students will be housed on campus in alternative locations during this transition. Returning residents can elect to stay on campus in extended rooms in any of the halls, including Wing B, or in Fields/Schoenfeldt study rooms. Students who choose this option will receive a $750 housing credit, including students who are temporarily gaining an extra roommate. Returning residents can also choose to stay with family or friends off campus until Wing A opens. These students will receive a pro-rated refund for the unused on-campus housing and their meal plan will remain active.
