Create Your Own Theme: This unique housing option allows students to build a living environment that interests them, by creating a theme and inviting other students to join in on this shared interest. This rubric will be used to make the determination in which Create Your Own Themes are selected.

Food Justice: Food Justice creates a community at Occidental College that fosters the development of sustainable food practices and instills awareness of the possibility of an environmentally conscious and socially aware lifestyle of eating and cooking ethically.  The tentative location for this community will be at 4863 Stratford Road.

Multicultural Scholars: The Multicultural Scholars community is a space in which students may openly discuss their differences and pluralistic identities with neighbors of different identities and backgrounds so that we may learn about our differences and celebrate them. The expre gained here are intended to prepare residents to lead and thrive in an increasingly globalized society, with an emphasis on social justice and service.  The tentative lcoation for this community will be Pauley Hall.

Queer Scholars: The Queer Scholars TLC aims to create a space for queer, LGBT+, non-heterosexual and non-cisgender students to explore their identity, foster intragroup solidarity, and create intentional programming for the Occidental College community.  Queer refers to any individual identifying as anything other than cisgender and/or heterosexual.  Any individual who does not align with hegemonic and normative sexual and gender identities are welcome to live  in this space. The tentative location for this community will be at Guest House, 1480 Campus Road.

Serenity Scholars: The Serenity Scholars TLC is intended to be a peaceful  a residential community where residents respect each other's need for a quiet environment.  To honor the rights of those who have selected this community, these expectations also apply to guests visiting the community.  The tentative location for this community is TBD.

Substance-Free: This healthy living housing option is intended for students that are willing to make a commitment to maintain a living environment free from tobacco (including smokeless), alcohol, and all other drugs. Students living in the substance free community do not have to agree to abstain entirely from the use of tobacco (including smokeless), alcohol and all other drugs, but they are not permitted to possess or consume them within the community. 

Women Scholars: The Women Scholars community will focus on developing a strong sense of community for women who want to live with other women.  This is a close-knit community that provides women with a safe space for discussion, communal living, personal development, and scholarship.  The tentative lcoation for this community will be at Berkus House, 1601 Campus Road. 

More information about these living options can be found on the Themed Learning Communities page.
