The neighborhood is a blend of established residential homes and Greek housing. Central Lutheran Church is directly across the street and welcomes the residents to join in worship, church activities, and social events.
Who may apply for residency?

Upon receipt of your application, Sister Clare will contact you about next steps, which include a coffee conversation, tour of Christus House, and background check before final acceptance.
As a ministry of Central Lutheran Church, Christus House is also what is known as “Reconciling in Christ.” This designation indicates our commitment to safety for and celebration of all children of God in their various identities (ethnic/racial, gender/sex/sexuality, ability, economic status, etc). While we know sin causes us to stumble in achieving the fullness of this vision, we are actively engaged in educating ourselves and always being made new in this commitment to all God’s beloved.
Admission is ongoing unless our maximum occupancy has been met.
NOTE: The University of Oregon has initiated a freshman live-on requirement effective Fall 2017. University Housing has indicated that there is a process in place for individuals to apply for an exemption to this requirement. We recommend talking to your housing or admissions representative about this process as soon as possible. You can find out more about the freshman live-on requirement here.
