Application for Third Years
Occidental is a residential college. Third year students can live off campus, but only after receiving approval.
Permission to live off-campus is determined through an application process during the spring semester of a student’s sophomore year. Students should not sign a lease for or otherwise commit to off-campus housing until they receive written approval from the Office of Residential Education and Housing Services in the month of May that precedes the student’s junior year. Students who do not have written permission to reside off-campus are obligated to reside in, and pay for, room and board on campus in accordance with the College’s housing policies.
Students in their junior year that wish to apply to live off campus should complete this application.
All students applying to live off-campus should read the Third Year Live-Off Acceptance/Revocation Policy.
