Occupancy Standards

Occupancy Standards

Current occupancy standards as set forth by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Oregon Revised Statutes.

  • Occupancy is based on the number of bedrooms in a unit. (A bedroom is defined as a habitable room that is intended to be used primarily for sleeping purposes, contains at least 70 square feet and is configured so as to take the need for a fire exit into account.)
  • The general rule is two persons are allowed per bedroom. Owner/ Agent may adopt a more liberal occupancy standard based on factors such as size and configuration of the unit, size and configuration of the bedrooms, and whether any occupants will be infants.
