Roommate and Room Assignment Information

REHS will spend the months of June and July reviewing all incoming student housing applications, determining room assignments and matching roommates. This is a significant task and will take several weeks to complete. Students can expect to receive their room assignment and roommate(s) information in early August.

Themed Living Communities

Themed Living Communities (TLCs): TLCs, a signature program offered by REHS, create affinity spaces for students with shared identities and provide opportunities to learn and build community through intentional programming that centers the TLC theme. 

  • First Year Students: If you are interested in applying for a TLC, you are able to indicate this when you complete your housing application; there is no separate application process.

Space is limited in each of the communities and all applicants will be notified when they receive their housing assignment in early August. Students who are unable to be assigned to a TLC will receive roommate and room assignment information in August. 

Disability Housing Accommodations

2023 Spring Transfer students—if you have a medical need for a housing accommodation due to a documented medical or psychiatric disability, or have questions about housing accommodations, please review the Housing Accommodation Policy on the Disability Services website and contact Disability Services directly at accessibility@oxy.edu or (323) 259-2969. First-year students (starting Fall 2023)—please wait to contact DS until further notice. 

Transfer Students

Historically, we can house most if not all students who ask for housing in the fall but it is not guaranteed. More specific information and instructions coming soon. 


If you have any additional questions, please contact the Office of Residential Education and Housing Services at resed@oxy.edu or (323) 259-2531. We are looking forward to welcoming you into our residence halls and onto campus!
