Important Information Regarding

2014-2015 New Student 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.


Important Move-In Information

Early Arrivals: Approved early arrivals (students who work for campus departments that requested housing due to business needs of the University) move directly into their fall room assignments after 8 AM on the day they are assigned to move in. Access ID Cards have been updated for the specific date provided in the approval email. Students assigned to the W Building in Drescher cannot move in early.

Returners: Room access has been set for approved returning students if they have an Access ID Card with a five-digit number under the magnetic strip.

New Students without the five-digit number on their cards: Access ID Cards are processed by Tech Central in the Payson Library between 8 AM-5 PM weekdays.

Can I move in to my room early even if I haven't signed up as an early arrival?
No. June 1 was the deadline to sign up for an early arrival and we are not able to accommodate any last minute requests. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you to campus on your approved move-in date!
