Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I required to live in campus housing?

Our residency requirement policy states that all new students are required to live on campus and have meal plans for four semesters and all transfer students are required to live on campus for one semester. We believe the relationships and community built during these first years of attending Pepperdine are vital to the college experience. The Housing and Residence Life program provides an atmosphere that empowers students to make connections between faith, living, and learning within a diverse community.

Where do I sign up for housing?

Current students may enter the Housing Portal to complete the Housing Application. Check your Pepperdine email account regularly for updates and deadlines. Students will be assigned a room and will not select their own housing.

If I need an accommodation, what should I do?

All students in need of accommodations must work through the Office of Student Accessibility (OSA). 

The Spring deadline to complete registration with the Office of Student Accessibility for new students is December 1, 2019. Returning students must complete registration by November 1, 2019

Students who currently have accommodations must annually renew and update their accommodations.

How do I select a meal plan?

Meal plan requirements correspond with living areas, and you will be able to select a meal plan in the Housing Portal. For more details, please visit our Meal Plan Information page.
