Residential Education & Housing Services (REHS) staff work hard to continually provide a supportive and inclusive residential experience here at Oxy. At this time, REHS are still in the process of determining what residential living will look like in the fall. Check back here for the latest information as it becomes available.

Housing Application

In early summer you will be asked to complete your housing application using our housing software eRezlife. eRezlife allows you to complete your housing application, establish roommate groups and review resources & bulletins that are full of information. Instructions will be sent to you, via email, when the housing application opens.

If you have any questions in the interim, please contact the Office of Residential Education and Housing Services at or (323) 259-2531.

The College does not provide linen or laundry service. All beds are twin extra long, 38 x 80 inches, so plan accordingly when buying linens. Laundry facilities are available in each residence hall and use campus ID card funds for payment (coins are not accepted). The third-party vendor, On Campus Marketing (OCM), offers special pricing for Oxy students on linens and other residence hall supplies.

Substance-Free Housing & College Policies

All first-year residence halls are substance-free. New students will find College policies regarding student conduct and the use of alcohol, drugs and smoking in Oxy's online Student Handbook. Students are expected to review the Code of Student Conduct prior to the start of Orientation.
