Office of Student Affairs
The Office of Student Affairs is here to make sure your learning environment is safe, supportive, enriching and stimulating.
We can help you find the support you need.

If you have a disability, we offer accommodations to make sure you have equal access to your education.

Whether you’re looking for a place to live in Portland, or you need housing while on rotation, we can help you with your search.

We offer one-on-one counseling and group workshops to help you make decisions about your finances. We’re here to assist you in creating a plan that boosts your confidence and financial well-being.

Meet with a career coach for guidance on career development or find a mentor to support your success. We also offer workshops and training sessions tailored just for you.
Get support as an international student
We can help you with immigration issues and support you through the transition of moving to Oregon.
Get support if you experience sexual misconduct, discrimination, harassment, interpersonal violence or retaliation
Confidential advocates are here to help if you experience sexual misconduct, discrimination, harassment, interpersonal violence or retaliation at OHSU or outside of OHSU. We’ll connect you to resources and guide you throughout the process.
You can submit a formal report without speaking to a confidential advocate first through the Office of Civil Rights Investigations and Compliance.
You can submit an anonymous report through the Integrity Helpline.
Share your pronouns and gender identity
We invite you to share your pronouns and gender identity with us. When you share your pronouns, OHSU faculty and support staff will see them, and they will appear on class rosters. Sharing pronouns and using them correctly helps create an inclusive space where all gender identities are affirmed.
How to share your pronouns
We encourage you to share your pronouns, but it is not required. Every effort to share pronouns helps create a more inclusive space for all.
You can share your pronouns in:
- Student Self-Service (learn how)
- Email signatures
- ID badges
Pronoun and gender identity information you share will be a part of your education record, which is confidential and protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and OHSU Policy 02-20-005.
Our expectation is that once you learn someone’s pronouns you use them correctly. Not only can calling someone by the wrong pronoun make them feel unseen, hurt and disrespected, but it could be considered discrimination under OHSU’s Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation policy.
