Looking for affordable housing with a well-supported community while you attend college? Oregon college students find the ultimate living arrangements with College Housing Northwest’s nonprofit student housing development options.

Student-Driven Residences

Our communities exist to serve the needs of students. As a nonprofit organization, we can provide students with housing that removes many of the common barriers that come with a first-time rental, such as previous rental experience requirements or huge security deposits. Ultimately, we provide convenient, affordable student housing at below-market rates. Our buildings have controlled key fob access, a wide range of support services, and amenities that contribute to an exceptional living experience expressly for college students.

At the Goose Hollow, our free shuttle service provides transportation to a variety of Portland area higher learning institutions, and the college student-oriented environments contained within each complex were created to help students achieve their academic goals. Our staff assists with all aspects of daily life, and students are encouraged to participate in a wide range of events and resident-led activities.

Partner Universities

We have affiliations and marketing arrangements with local universities and colleges in Oregon; this includes Portland State University, Oregon State University, Pacific Northwest College of Art, Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, and Portland Community College. With our 501(c)(3) status, we have unique financial parameters and access to non-taxable and municipal bonds. Both larger universities and smaller colleges realize the benefit of partnering with us to minimize the financial burden of student housing. In addition, exemption from property taxes frees up funds that go directly towards enhancing student life and providing support to students.
