Frequently Asked Questions


Please note that mid-year contract cancellations are not allowed, as stated in your housing contract. If you have any questions, please contact the Housing Office at housing@pepperdine.edu.

If you would like to cancel your housing application for the next academic year, please visit the Housing Portal and email the Housing Office to start the cancellation process. Please note that fees may apply. 

How does my Office of Student Accessibility accommodation impact housing selection?

All current students with approved housing accommodations must renew and update their accommodations through the Office of Student Accessibility (OSA) annually. For more information, please visit our Student Accessibility webpage.

  • Sophomores are prioritized for campus housing due to the residency requirement and will participate in the regular process of Housing Portal time slot assignments.
  • Juniors and seniors also participate in a Housing Portal time slot assignment process to determine who will live on campus. This includes students with approved housing accommodations.

If an upperclassman with an approved housing accommodation secures a space on campus through the Housing Portal time slot assignments, Housing and Residence Life and Residence Life (HRL) and OSA will then work with the student to address the accommodation specifics based on availability.

How do I select a meal plan?

Meal plan requirements correspond with living areas and student classification, so you will not be able to select a meal plan until you are officially placed in housing. Any meal plan change requests should be emailed to housing@pepperdine.edu from your Pepperdine email address.

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

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