There are a variety of ways to look for housing. Incoming student ask using the graduate student listserv. Want-ad distribution to your discipline group of CEOAS grads is available. Contact Lori Hartline for this. You may also find the following web addresses helpful:
Arriving in Corvallis
Please let us know when you are arriving in Corvallis.
If you are starting in summer for fieldwork or a cruise, please let us know ASAP.
It is recommended that you arrive in Corvallis by late August or early September in order to have time to get settled before it is time to begin student-related tasks. There are some housekeeping activities that you can do before classes begin, and getting these out of the way will make for less stressful startup.
CHECK IN with Lori Hartline, CEOAS Admin Bldg, Room 100, or via email/text firstname.lastname@example.org or 541.602.8588.
Shortly after you arrive in Corvallis, please stop in, email, or call to let us know that you have arrived in town. We hope you will arrive with questions!
PLEASE HOLD THESE DATES OPEN.
If you are not able to attend (via ZOOM) any of these required events, including first-week classes, due to Observance or scheduling conflicts, please let us know as soon as possible. WRGP incoming grads please contact the WRGP Program (Cat Mullins, or Director Mary Santelmann).
