Southern Oregon University

Proof of Eligibility:

Upon check-in to a rental unit and before signing the Family Housing Rental Agreement, the University will require the applicant to provide proof of eligibility including, but not limited to, admission certificate, marriage certificate, children's birth certifcates, custody papers, visitation agreements/parenting plan, or other documentation as determined necessary by the Family Housing Office. If you have been approved to have an animal, you will also be required to provide certain documentation, such as vet records. A full list of required documentation will be provided to you when you sign your Assignment Acceptance letter for an available apartment or house.

Student Status:

A Family Housing applicant must be offically admitted to the University at the time the rental agreement is signed and the student takes occupancy. To remain eligible for Family Housing, a resident must register for and complete a minimum of twelve academic credits each term (six for Graduate students): meet the minimum qualifications for satisfactory academic progress as stated in the University Catalogue, and enroll in all 3 academic year terms (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Couples and roommates cannot combine units.

Priority Structure:

Family Housing assigns available units based on a priority structure (please see below). Your particular priority is always the highest priority under which you qualify! For example, if you are 28 years old, single, and a Graduate student, you would be a priority 3 (25 or older) and not a priority 4 (Graduate students). If you are a parent/guardian of two children and a freshman, you are a priority 1 (students with children) and not ineliglble (single Freshman under 25). If you have questions about your particular priority or place on the waiting list, please call our office at 541-552-6371.
