First Year Students:

On-campus housing will be provided to all new first-year students. Additional details about housing, including roommate matching and assignments, will be shared with students in early June.

Rising Sophomore Students:

On-campus housing will be provided to all rising sophomore students. Residential Education and Housing Services is aware that due to the virtual nature of the 2020-21 year, some sophomore students may not have connected with other students. Therefore, roommate matching will be offered to all sophomore students. Additional details about housing, including roommate matching and assignments, will be shared with students in early June.  

New Transfer Students:

New transfer students with sophomore or junior standing will be offered on-campus housing for the 2021-22 year. New transfer students with senior standing may inquire about housing availability with Residential Education and Housing Services by emailing mhankerson@oxy.edu.


What makes a community?

At Occidental, our student body advocates for communities that demonstrate mutual respect, support, and celebration.

Residential Education and Housing Services partners with students to shape and nurture their community.

During the three years that students are required to live on campus we offer a variety of living options. All students are connected to well-trained Resident Advisors for near-peer support as well as professional Residential Education staff members who live and work on-campus. 

We offer 17 on-campus halls and houses which include a number of Themed Living Communities to offer students a variety of living and learning experiences on campus.
