Residence Halls

At Reed, all on-campus residence halls are part of neighborhoods. First-year students live in first-year neighborhoods. Sophomores and upper-division students may be assigned to the same building if occupancy and enrollment necessitate it.

The current neighborhood model is subject to change depending on available bed spaces and as we learn more about the College's enrollment over the summer months.

First-Year Neighborhoods

First-year neighborhoods are primarily focused on helping incoming students transition to Reed. Programs and resources are focused on finding community on campus and adjusting to Reed’s academic and campus life.

Returning Student Neighborhoods

Programs and resources are focused on personal/professional/academic goals and sustaining community.

Language Houses

We are pleased to have Language Houses as residential communities for next academic year. Language Houses are only open to returning students with preference given to sophomores.

Our goal is to provide students with an opportunity to reside on campus. During the application process, the portal will ask each member if the selected rooomate or room preference (location, single/double) is more important. This means if having a single is a higher priority to you than a selected roommate, we’d attempt to find a single, but ultimately would prioritize a single, and not the roommate.

More info on how to apply will be outlined in the housing application once that becomes available on the portal. We hope that you will consider staying with us on campus!
