This page provides detailed information about on-campus housing for the upcoming year, including the application process, roommate selection, move-in and more.
- College Vaccination Requirement
As shared in President Elam’s message to the community on May 25, vaccinations will be required for all students. In addition, Sara Semal, from Emmons Wellness Center sent a follow up message to all students about the process for submitting your vaccination information, which will be due on June 15, 2021. The vaccination requirement will allow for medical and religious exemptions. Please note, however, that a student’s inability or failure to be vaccinated may impact their ability to receive on-campus housing.
- How to Complete Your Housing Application
- The Fall 2021 Housing Application will be made available starting on Tuesday, June 1. REHS utilizes an electronic software called eRezlife to manage housing. eRezlife allows you to complete your housing application, indicate roommate preferences, and review additional resources & bulletins pertaining to housing at Oxy. Please review the step by step eRezlife instructions and be sure to complete your housing application by the June 25 deadline.
Step 1: Log in to Oxy.erezlife.com, by using your Oxy credentials (the same login used for your myOxy account). When logging in, you will use the tool bar on the left side of the screen under the header "Housing" to complete all of the steps. Note: You will need to have received your Oxy login credentials in order to log into the website. If you do not have your credentials OR if you are having trouble logging in, you will need to contact Oxy’s Information Technology Services (ITS) department who can further assist you. ITS can be contacted at: email@example.com or by calling (323) 259-2880 during College business hours.
Step 2: Select "My Housing Profile" and confirm that all of your information is correct and press SAVE. Go back to the toolbar and select "Housing Overview” and click “Apply Now” to access the Fall 2021 Housing Application.
Step 3: Complete the Fall 2021 Housing Application. You must submit the application by June 25, 2021.
Step 4: Please read the Terms & Conditions file on the confirmation page of the housing application. This is where you will review your Housing License Agreement. Don't forget to click “Submit”.
Step 5: If you have a preferred roommate, go back to the toolbar and select "Roommate Groups." Create a great group name. You must put in your desired roommate(s) Oxy email address. Members of the roommate group will receive an email asking for their acceptance. All members must confirm their placement in the group. Note: Roommates and room type (i.e, Doubles and/or Triples) are not guaranteed based on your roommate groups. Though we try to honor all requests, students will be placed in what is available at the time of housing placements. For example, a roommate group of two people does not guarantee a double room; you may have a third person added to form a triple.
- Roommate and Room Assignment Information
REHS will spend the months of June and July reviewing all incoming student housing applications, making room assignments and roommate matchings. As this is a significant task, this will take several weeks to complete. Students can expect to receive their room assignment and roommate(s) information on or around Friday, August 6.
- Themed Living Communities
Themed Living Communities (TLCs): TLCs, a signature program offered by REHS, create affinity spaces for students with shared identities or shared interests, and provide opportunities to learn and build community through intentional programming that centers the TLC theme. Sophomores TLC options are:
- Multicultural TLC - Pauley Hall
- Substance Free - Erdman Hall
- Rivera & Johnson - Haines Hall
- Black Soul Collective - Berkus Hall
- Latinx Culture Collective - Berkus Hall
- APIDA (Asian, Pacific Islander, Desi-American) - Berkus Hall
- Food Justice House (off-campus house one block from the main campus)
The TLC Upper Division Guide contains additional information on each community and where they are located. To be considered for a TLC, you should complete the Themed Living Community Application. This application will be available June 1, and will be due by Friday, June 25. If you complete the TLC application, you do not need to complete the standard housing application. Space is limited in each of the communities and all applicants will be notified in late July if they have been assigned to a TLC. Students who we are unable to assign to a community will receive roommate and room assignment information by Friday, August 6.
- Disability Housing Accommodations
If you need 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 submit your accommodation request online. The deadline for new-to-housing students to apply for Disability Housing Accommodations for Fall 2021 housing is June 15, 2021.
- Fall Move-in
All returning sophomores are permitted to arrive on campus as early as Thursday, August 26, 8:00am PDT. REHS is unable to honor any early housing requests, so you will need to seek alternative housing accommodations should you have a need to arrive in the area earlier than August 26. If you are involved in a College program or Fall sport that requires an early arrival, please contact that department or office directly for information about your arrival.
