2024-2025 Academic Year Housing 

Housing Waitlists

As the housing self-selection process has concluded, the Housing Portal is now open for students who did not self-select a room or are interested in a residential area that is full to sign up for a housing waitlist(s).

To access the waitlist page please go to the Housing Portal > Academic Year Application > Application Status > Additional Steps > Waitlist. Students are welcome to sign up for one, some, or all waitlists that are available to them. Placements will be offered to students who sign up on a waitlist on a rolling basis based on availability. Offers will expire within 24 - 48 hours, so please be sure to monitor your Pepperdine email account consistently throughout the summer to avoid missing an offer.

Please note that there is limited space for rising juniors and seniors, and housing cannot be guaranteed.

Frequently Asked Questions

  Can I cancel my housing contract?

Mid-year housing cancellations are not allowed, as stated in your housing contract. If you have any questions, please contact the Housing Office at

  How do I apply for a housing accommodation?

Students should work with the Office of Student Accessibility (OSA) to register for a housing accommodation. All current students with approved housing accommodations must renew and update their accommodations on an annual basis. For more information, please visit our Student Accessibility webpage.

Once a student receives approval for their housing accommodation(s), Housing and Residence Life (HRL) and OSA will work with the student to address the specifics of the accommodation, based on availability.

  How do I select a meal plan?

Meal plan requirements correspond with living areas and student classification, so students will not be able to select a meal plan until they are officially placed in housing. Students may be required to purchase a meal plan depending on placement. For more details on required meal plans, please visit our Meal Plan Information or Meal Plan Rates page. 

Once a meal plan is selected, any meal plan requests should be emailed to from Pepperdine email addresses by posted deadlines.

If you are a commuter (off-campus) student, please email with any meal plan requests! We are happy to assist you in enrolling in a meal plan. 

  Can I change my room?

Review the instructions and policies around room changes on our Room Change Procedures webpage. 


We are pleased to offer a list of University-approved services on our HRL On-Campus Vendors page.
