Oregon Tech Housing and Residence Life is sharing some of our more frequently asked questions. We hope the FAQs listed below answer your questions regarding Housing and Residence Life.
You may not hear from Housing for a bit-but don't worry! There are many steps in the process. You will get information via email about our Choose My Room Program. We will send out an assignment letter to your email and your home address in early July sharing information about your room, mailing address, and roommate(s) information including how to contact your new roommate(s). Just continue to check the email address that you applied for housing with.
The biggest issue that students have when trying to find a roommates name is hitting the space bar while typing in a name. The space will show as a character and will not allow you to find who you are looking for. Also remember the students name is the one they applied to the University with and not necessarily a nickname.
Wireless is available in all the buildings. Village access points are located in the hallways. Residence Hall has access points in each room.
