CGE Housing Board



Welcome to the CGE housing board, where we try to connect CGEers looking for someone to live with to each other.

We also have a forum on Facebook since Fall 2017.

This board is by and for CGE members and Oregon State University graduate employees, incoming or current.

– If you’re in an established housing situation and you’re looking for someone to fill a vacancy, post a little about the vacancy, rent, and relevant dates.

– If you’re looking yourself to fill a vacancy in an already-established housing situation, browse through the most recent vacancies posted below. If you can’t find what you’re looking for that way, post a little about yourself and what kind of housing situation you’re looking for and relevant info and dates. In any case, don’t forget to leave some sort of contact info so folks know how to get in touch with you.

– If you are in need of aid or assistance from other graduate students, post what you are comfortable with sharing and your contact info and other relevant information. Mutual aid refers to (but is not limited to): emergency housing, food insecurity, safety needs. Please also see the OSU Human Resources Service Center which has a food pantry and provides up to 2 weeks of emergency housing.

The Coalition of Graduate Employees is committed to providing a welcoming environment for all of our members and fellow graduate students – civil discourse and mutual respect for all races, cultures, classes, disabilities, genders, and sexualities is our goal.

    Hello fellow grad students,

  2. Heather Moline says:

    Looking for a summer sub-letter–a female mature student or young professional–to fill a room in a shared house between campus and downtown, easy walking distance from both, in a quiet neighborhood. Flexible start/end date around mid-June, ending around September 1. Ideal for someone wanting to check out Corvallis before deciding where to live in the fall, or for a summer internship. The big, old, clean house has 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The available room is upstairs and has two(!) walk-in closets. There is a shared kitchen, living/dining room, huge basement (for storage–which will be useful for sub-letting), and washer/dryer. Rent is $450/month and utilities range from ~$20-90 depending on the season. There are three other women living in the house, two young professionals and one grad student. No smoking or pets, please–the landlord lives across the street and is very kind, attentive and helpful, but it also means following the rules! If interested or with any questions please email molineh(at) and share a little about yourself. Thanks!

    Hey everyone,

    We are looking for a 3rd roommate in a 3 bedroom/1.5 bath house in South Corvallis for April 15 (lease term and move in can be a little flexible!). One of our roommates just got a job in Portland and has to move ASAP.

    The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac and has 2 covered porches, a yard with a fire pit, and space for gardening. It’s a 15 minute bike ride from OSU as well as near the Route 6 bus line, and is close to the South Corvallis Co-op, Burrito Heaven, Willamette Park, and the Sports Park. Parking is available, as well as space for bikes. There’s a washer and dryer in the garage, and some additional storage space.

    The room is 10’x10′ with a decent sized closet, and is $500/month plus utilities and a $500 security deposit. No pets.

    About us:
    I’m a 3rd year PhD student in Integrative Biology and my roommate is in his first year of a PhD in the Math department. We both enjoy biking, gardening, and cooking, although our main focus is school. We like to be able to come home to a relaxed (and clean!) living space, but also have friends over for a beer or two, or the occasional get-together.

    Let me know if you’re interested and I can provide more information and photos, or answer any questions.

  10. Jason says:


    We are a gay couple who has a 2BD/2BA apartment unit. The master suite (furnished bedroom with private, full bath) is available for rent at $650 (including utilities). Security deposit is $200, refundable upon move-out. There is also a $50 application fee (through the apartment complex).

    It’s a 5-10 minute drive to OSU or a 15-20 minute bike ride. Street parking available. Unit includes a small covered patio, washer/dryer in unit, dishwasher, and electric stove. The room includes a queen bed, closet, and bedside lamp. There is also space for a desk/work area. The complex has an outdoor pool/jacuzzi, community room (including pool table and tanning bed), free printing and coffee bar, and a 24/7 gym and shower. Bald Hill Natural Area ( and Grand Oaks Park ( are within walking distance from the complex.

    No smoking or additional pets; we have two friendly cats.

    We request that the unit stays within 60-70 F all year. The apartment stays very cool in the summer thanks to the trees surrounding this ground-floor unit.

    This living arrangement is ideal for college students who enjoy a quiet space and a gay-friendly environment. The apartment lacks a conventional entertainment/living room because the main space is our work space.

    If you have any questions or are interested in a visit, let us know through here or at Pics are available on the CGE Housing Facebook page.

  12. Samm says:

    Hi Everyone,

    There are three bedrooms available in a five bedroom house on grant near campus, coffee shops, and grocery stores. Rent for the rooms ranges from $277 to $427. Email if you are interested.

    It is in a good location, is pet friendly, and has a big back porch, yard, and garage.

  13. Erich Merrill says:

    I have two rooms available in my two-story, six-bedroom house one block north of campus that I’d like to rent to fellow grad students. The house is 3,300 sq. ft., has a sizable backyard (with an apple and a pear tree), off-street parking for one car per tenant, and each floor has its own full kitchen and bathroom. It’s also equipped with air conditioning, heating, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

    Starting September 16th, one room is available on the main floor for $600/mo and one room downstairs is available for $550/mo (plus an equal share of utilities for each room– est. ~$40-$70/mo). The rooms themselves are unfurnished, but the common areas have the basics provided. No pets can be accommodated as there is already a young, very friendly dog in the house.

    The other current tenants and I (all male) frequently spend time in the house working on our research or other schoolwork, so the atmosphere house needs to stay quiet and calm to accommodate those schedules. As a result, living here would not be a good fit for you if you’re interested in a place that regularly hosts social events– but if you’re interested in living somewhere where you can reasonably expect to study and work on your own schedule, send me an email at and I can provide you with pictures of the house, its address, and we can arrange a time to meet if everything looks good.

  14. Aidan Estelle says:


    I’m an incoming PhD student looking to rent a room or to share an apartment. I’m pretty quiet and (I think) easy to get along with. I’m fine with pets, don’t smoke, although I’m fine with smokers, and am open to living with any gender.

    The upper limit on my budget is somewhere in the $600-650 range. I’m hoping to live near campus, but open to living farther away.

    If you have a place for rent, or are looking for someone to share an apartment with, email me at or text me at (858)539-5122

    Hi folks,

    So, I’m looking for anyone that would be interested in renting a house for the coming year. I’m starting my Anthropology MA and husband will *hopefully* be starting his MA in English next year.

    My hubs and I are leaving Ohio August 13th and we are not having any luck finding a place… We have lived in a small one bedroom for the past three years and were hoping to find decently priced small place near Corvallis, Albany, or Lebanon…but holy price jacking.
    Whats really killing our search is the fact that we have three cats, and here’s the kicker, a (as of now) two month old.

    We are late twenties/early thirties if that makes a difference to you. We are both pretty homey like and introverted, both avid readers, love movies, and for the most part, nerdy with a side of cool. I love wine and coffee and cooking and baking from scratch- and share baked goods. ;)

    Our daughter, thus far, is pretty chill like we are and has a quiet and sweet disposition (seriously we hit the jackpot on newborns). Our three cats are cats… one of them talks and is very social, the other two are pretty stealthy, but all three are nice dudes who really just want some love.

    I know this is a reach, but we are kind of getting desperate… we would split rent/utilities 2/3 and 1/3. SO if anyone is crazy enough to consider living with us, email me please and let’s get to know each other!
