Important Information Regarding

2014-2015 New Student (Freshman/Transfer) Campus Housing

If you are a new student coming to Pepperdine, we encourage you to create and/or update your housing profile starting June 1st. Please click here for instructions. Keep the following information in mind as you prepare to register for housing:

  • Housing selection day for incoming Freshmen students begins at 8AM (PDT) on Monday, July 7, 2014. Eligible locations are all first year residence halls.
  • Priority room selection will go to those who have linked up with roommates from 8AM to 12PM (noon) PDT.  Those without a roommate(s), solo residents can choose after 12PM (noon) PDT.
  • Roommate Gateway will be shutdown temporarily from 6AM-8AM on Monday, July 7, 2014. At 8AM you will be able to log in, search for and select housing. This process was put in place in order to create a fair and equal opportunity for all students.
  • Keep in mind that Roommate Gateway controls logins; only one login per student ID is allowed in the housing selection site during room selection.
  • Transfer students will create a profile on Roommate Gateway and will be able to search for roommates but will be hand placed in a transfer student housing area by the housing office. If you are a transfer student, please email housing@pepperdine.edu by the end of the day on Monday, July 7, 2014, if you have a specific roommate in mind.
