Preparing for Fall


Laptops are not required for our law students; however, they can be a definite asset in and out of the classroom. Students use their laptops for note taking in class, registration and research as well as taking end of the semester exams. The College of Law is completely wired. That is, the entire building is connected via fiber cables and with wireless technology. All faculty and administrative offices and all student carrels are network ready. FAQ information sheet regarding recommended computer specifications


Parking is available in designated Willamette University parking lots without a parking permit during orientation week but all other parking regulations remain in effect. As of the first week of September, parking permits will be required and Campus Safety will issue citations to cars parked in Willamette University parking lots without a parking permit.

Students will receive information at orientation regarding the purchase a parking permit.


There are a very limited number of apartments that are reserved on-campus.  Therefore, the majority of law students live off campus in Salem and the surrounding area.

Our current 2015-16 Guide to Moving to Salem may prove helpful in your search for a local area apartment and or property management services.  Additionally, the Office of Residential Services maintains an updated listing of the availability of on campus housing.

Additional postings for housing and apartments are located on a bulletin board in the first floor College of Law student lounge.
