Located on the Oregon State University campus in Corvallis, the Gem is the former College Inn. We gave it a much-needed facelift in 2006 (both inside and out) and re-named the modern, colorful building after OSU’s first campus newspaper. Many Gem residents are honors’ college and graduate students who love using the property’s comfortable community spaces for socializing or studying.
Every Gem apartment is fully furnished. The rent includes all utilities, plus air conditioning, cable, Internet and local phone service. Students enjoy on-site gym and laundry facilities and participate in program planning through the Resident Council. On-site management and Resident Ambassadors are available 24 hours a day, ready to lend a hand and respond quickly to questions or concerns.
The Gem is great for students who don’t need a structured dorm, but feel right at home with some extra support from our Living Learning Community model. It’s the best of both worlds.
