We hope your son or daughter will decide to join us at Oregon Tech, but we also want to make sure Oregon Tech is the best fit for your student. The best way to get a feel for Oregon Tech is to schedule a campus visit. A campus visit allows you to meet with a financial aid and admissions counselor, take a campus tour, check out on-campus housing, and talk with current students and faculty. You can also encourage your student to contact us via email or at 541.885.1150 to chat with an admissions counselor.
If you are unable to make it to campus, then be sure to check out our online virtual tour.

Students interested in on-campus housing, athletics, and a “traditional” four-year university experience should consider attending the main campus in Klamath Falls. The Portland campus is a satellite to Oregon Tech’s main location in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Students attending the Portland campus generally take lower-division courses at a community college and only core upper-division courses at the Portland campus. Many Portland students are working part-time or full-time and pursuing a degree through evening and weekend classes.
Each major has the opportunity to participate in an externship. Externship: The student is attending Oregon Tech, taking courses online or at a different campus and receiving credit for externship experience.
Mechanical engineering students have the opportunity to participate in MECOP which is two 6-month paid internships. Students participating in MECOP take 6-months to a year off from school to participate.

Tuition and Fees:
No, freshman are not required to live on campus. However, many new students find on-campus housing is the best way for to get involved in campus activities, meet new people, and stay ahead in classes.

Students may select from two options for on campus housing:
- Residence Hall. The Residence Hall offers community style living with single or double rooms. In addition, first year students can request to be in the FYE (First Year Experience) wing for students who are looking to live with other first year students and participate in events and activities designed to enhance the first year college experience.
- The Village apartments offer apartment style living. Each apartment has 3-5 bedrooms, 1-2 bathrooms, and a shared living room and kitchen area.

Students are not required to live in on-campus housing, but many students find living on campus is the best way to meet new friends, get involved in campus life, and avoid the complications of off-campus housing. The Residence Hall and the Village are only minutes from the College Union building, classrooms/labs, the Learning Resource Center, Campus Dining, and the other resources students use on a daily basis.
