MAY 15, 2020 UPDATE
Fall 2020 Housing Occupancy Due to social distancing recommendations, the College's administration has decided to limit the number of student housing spaces to support safety precautions for the Fall 2020 term. This limited occupancy model will result in two residents sharing an apartment (rather than 4-5) to allow each resident a single bedroom and private bathroom. This model will result in fewer students living on-campus and how those students are being selected. We are still considering how applicants will be prioritized for our limited housing spaces, but applicants will be notified by June 1.
We encourage applicants to begin exploring other housing options in the event we are unable to accommodate them on campus.
Rental rates have been adjusted for the 2020-2021 Lease Contract term. ONLY single rooms will be available for the fall 2020 term. Double and private room types will NOT be available. Rates are per term for the fall and spring.
Single Room - $2,030
Wait List Applicants who are not reserved a bed space by June 1 will be placed on a wait list. Should additional bed spaces become available at any time during the leasing process (June 2020 - June 2021), those spaces will be offered based on the priority factors to be determined. Viking Woods staff monitor wait lists on a regular basis and will notify applicants via their @jeffco.edu email account if a space becomes available.
Please know that we are watching health and safety reports regularly to make a decision as soon as possible regarding our fall housing operations. Should reports show improved results and we believe it is safe to welcome larger groups on campus, we may open more student housing spaces to help accommodate all that are interested in this unique community college amenity. We will work to provide the best student housing experience for as many students as we can in the fall, but we do want to be cautious and do our part in the prevention of the spread of any virus that is still considered a threat.
Our office will continue to be closed through June 8, at which time we are planning to resume limited business hours on Mondays-Thursday from 9am – 2 pm (except holidays). However, our staff are continuing to work remotely and are available by email at email@example.com. We will continue to communicate with applicants directly via their @jeffco.edu accounts.
I understand this update may cause some concerns, but please know we are working with our campus partners to ensure each student is supported in the best way we can. Thank you for understanding and being patient as we continue to work through these challenges.

Viking Woods Student Housing provides an opportunity for Jefferson College students to learn new life skills through independent living and relationship building. Our multi-person apartments are nestled on a southern hillside of the Hillsboro campus - just a short walk to everything the campus has to offer. All apartments are equipped with full access kitchens and furnished living areas.
There are many benefits to living on campus while attending college, but Viking Woods stands out due to our ability to offer individual leases. An additional benefit to on-campus housing is that all apartment utilities are included in rent. For example, you will not have to pay separate bills for electricity, internet service, water, sewer, etc. (with the exception of cable television), nor will you have to worry about your services being disconnected should your roommates not pay their part.
