Pepperdine Student Housing and Residence Life

Living on-campus is an incredible way to fully experience college life. The on-campus experience offers students both convenience and a place to belong in a community. The residential experience provides students the opportunity for more peer and faculty interaction, enhanced learning, and academic, social, and spiritual growth. Our residence halls and apartments located on our picturesque Malibu campus provide quick access to our various schools, recreational facilities, and on-campus dining.

Pepperdine Housing and Residence Life's mission is to foster co-curricular student development in a fun, safe, caring, respectful, and inclusive Christian community in order to enhance its undergraduate and graduate students' learning experiences to their full potential.

Our vision is to create holistic communities where students feel known, supported, and challenged through authentic relationships. We strive to build student resilience through an environment where they experience and overcome social and individual challenges. We do so by maintaining a transformative community where students come alongside one another in love, service, and deference. Our aim is to engage and empower all residents to embody an inclusive Christian living community that exemplifies diversity, mutual respect, and personal and social responsibility.
