Room Draw

Room Draw is the process by which students select their living space on campus for the following academic year.

Oxy has a three-year live on requirement, which means that all students must live in college-owned housing for their first three years.  Seniors are not guaranteed on-campus housing, and will need to apply if they are interested in living on-campus. 

For Fall 2022, Rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors approved to live on-campus will select their housing assignments on a designated day during a specific time slot indicating their place in line to select their room. Room Draw is completed online using our housing software, eRezLife. Time slots are generated and assigned randomly. According to the time slot, students are given the option of living in a single, double or a triple room (depending upon what is available). Students who would like to live in a triple room, select their room on the first room draw date, as they will have the opportunity to select any residence hall has triple rooms.

Additional room draw information is sent out to students via email in February.  Please contact Residential Education and Housing Services at or (323) 259-2531 for any questions.

Housing selection for first-year and transfer students is completed over the Summer, and information about that process will be shared with students and families in June.
