As part of the Open for Fall, Open for All opportunity, we are offering a $2500 on-campus housing discount for students who meet the following requirements:

  • Pell-eligible
  • Live in on-campus housing for the full 2021-2022 academic year (Fall, Winter, & Spring)

We encourage students to file their FAFSA as soon as possible. Students who are ineligible to file a FAFSA can become eligible for the $2500 housing discount by receiving an Oregon Opportunity Grant. To apply for an Oregon Opportunity Grant, please file an ORSAA application with the state.

Be sure to regularly check your Banweb to ensure there are no outstanding requirements regarding Financial Aid.

Available for New and Returning Students

The $2500 on-campus housing discount will be split into three equal payments. Each payment will be applied to your student account for each term that you live on-campus (Fall, Winter, Spring). To maintain housing eligibility throughout the academic year, students must be enrolled in at least 8 undergraduate or 4 graduate credits at PSU each term and be in good financial and academic standing. 

Students will not be eligible for the full $2500 discount if they move-out of on-campus housing early. This discount is not available to students who move-in starting Winter or Spring term.
