Suite-Style Houses

Opened in 1972, Pepperdine's 20 single-gender suite-style houses each host approximately 50 Seaver College students. A short walk to the Seaver Campus, the houses offer community living, stunning ocean views, a laundry room, volleyball courts, outdoor common areas, wireless internet, community barbecues, community television, and a furnished lobby. Two resident advisors and one spiritual life advisor live in each house to guide and support our students during their time as residents.


Each suite typically contains:

  • Four double occupancy bedrooms. Each resident is typically provided with an extra-long twin bed, a dresser (or three stackable drawers), a small bookcase (or desktop book hutch), and a desk with chair. Each bedroom is 170 square feet (16 square meters).
  • A suite bathroom with two sinks, two showers, and two toilets.
  • A common living room furnished with a loveseat, lounge chair, and two sofas.
  • View a floor plan of a typical suite-style house room.
