Themed Housing at Occidental College is intended to create strong a link between students living on campus and their learning experience. A Themed Living Community is a group of students living together in college owned housing who share a common interest, vision, or goal. Students living in Themed Living Communities will enrich the opportunities available to the students, faculty, and staff of Occidental College by participating in educational programming around this shared interest.Each Themed Living Community will have the support of a faculty/staff advisor, the Residential Education staff, and an appointed Community Leader. Community Leaders will receive an orientation to their position, information on available resources, and expectations from the Office of Residential Education and Housing Services. The Assistant Director for Themed Living Communities, Graduate Hall Coordinators, and RAs are also available throughout the year to discuss concerns or questions you might have.
The mission of the Multicultural Hall is to provide a safe and aware community in which multiculturalism and diversity are promoted, nurtured, and applied to residential living and to the Occidental community as a whole. The experiences that result from living here are intended to prepare all residents to lead and thrive in an increasingly globalized society, with an emphasis on social justice and service for the communities from which we have come.
Multicultural Hall is a space in which students may openly discuss their differences and pluralistic identities with neighbors of different identities and backgrounds so that we may learn about our differences and celebrate them. By no means is Multicultural Hall intended to be an exclusive community, but rather an institution open to all who wish to engage in dialogue, serving as a living and evolving embodiment of the four cornerstones of the Occidental College mission statement: excellence, equity, community, and service.
Berkus House is an all-female living option that focuses on developing a strong sense of community among women who want to live with and be surrounded by other women. Berkus House is a close-knit community that provides women with a safe space for discussion, communal living, and personal development.
The Food Justice House creates a community within Occidental College that fosters the development of sustainable food practices and instills awareness of the possibility of an environmentally conscious and socially aware lifestyle outside of a campus setting.
