Apartments Near Oregon State

We simplify the reservation process at Sierra so that you enjoy an ideal experience. To reserve one of our Corvallis apartments, all you need to do is to fill out and submit an online application, which can be found under the “Apply Now” tab on our site. Once you have submitted your completed application and selected an apartment, our team will contact you with the next steps, including signing your housing contract and submitting guarantor or self-qualifying information per our rental criteria. Once you have completed your contract, we will screen you and your guarantor, if applicable, and contact you with the screening decision. Once you have received the screening decision results, we will notify you of any fees and/or deposits that are required (it’s as simple as that). We make the process easy, so you don’t have to worry about trying to figure it out. Simply contact us with any questions!
