You should apply as early as you can but only apply after you have been admitted to SOU and have activated your Inside SOU account. All students who apply for Southern Oregon University Student Apartments & Family Housing will be charged a $25 non-refundable application fee when being considered for an apartment.  An application fee is not required if there are no available units and you are only being placed on a waiting list.  However, if there are available units and you want to be considered for these, a $25 non-refundable appliation fee will be required before your application can be processed completely.

Upon being accepted for an apartment or house, you will receive a confirmation email in your SOU student email account. That email will contain the details of your reservation (full address, move-in costs, required documentation etc.). Your move-in payment MUST be in the form of a certified check or money order. Failure to provide all required documentation and/or pay your move-in costs on the day of check-in may result in your inability to take possession of the unit.

Student Apartments & Family Housing is not available to students attending only summer session without being admitted to SOU. Please check with Housing Services at (541)552-6371 for housing in the residence halls during summer.
