Living Off Campus

Whether you’re new in town or just looking for a fresh place to call home, Portland’s distinctive neighborhoods are sure to have what you’re looking for. 

The following resources have been recommended by third-party companies or individuals. The Office of Campus Living does not specifically recommend or endorse any of these websites or companies- they are simply listed as resources. We would appreciate feedback, particularly if you have difficulties!

  • Our undergraduate students have a four semester on-campus residency requirement that begins when you start at L&C. While we hope you continue to live on campus after completion of this requirement, we recognize that you may wish to find off-campus housing. 
  • Due to undergraduate housing needs, we are not able to offer graduate or law student housing for the 2024-25 academic year on campus. 
  • Law students who have been admitted, submitted their tuition deposit, and set up their Lewis & Clark email account can access rental listings here. 
  • Campus Living is able to complete rental agency verification requests or create proof of residency documents after students/alum submit the proper forms. Campus Living is not able to release information about enrollment, GPA, class standing, major/minors, academic standing, disciplinary records, or degree earned. For release of this type of student record information, please visit the Registrar’s website.
