Transfer Housing

Krown Suite-Style Houses

Housing and Residence Life welcomes you to the Pepperdine community!

Welcome home Waves! We are so excited for you to begin your life at Pepperdine. Please follow the placement process below to apply for on-campus housing for the Fall 2020 - Spring 2021 academic year.

May 15 - Housing Portal Opens

The Housing Portal goes live on May 15. Students must be accepted to the University, submit the "Intent to Enroll" form and pay the enrollment deposit (through WaveNet) before access to the portal is granted. If an error message appears, make sure your "Intent to Enroll" deposit has been submitted. After submission, allow 24 to 48 hours before the process is complete.

Once the portal has opened you will complete an application for the academic year. Students will have the opportunity to answer lifestyle questions that will help them choose potential roommates. You can use the messaging system to contact other students and select a person to room with until July 3.

July 3 - Deadline for contracts and roommate selection

The deadline for selecting a roommate and/or creating a roommate group of up to four people is on July 3 at 5 PM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). Students who submit applications after the deadline are still guaranteed housing, but they will not have the option of selecting a roommate and may receive their housing placement at a later date.

For a step-by-step guide on how to create roommate groups, please click here.

Other important deadlines:

  • Requests to be considered for a residency exemption are due no later than July 1 for new transfer students.
  • Requests for housing accommodation through the Office of Student Accessibility (OSA) require registering with that office no later than July 1. It is important to note that most accommodations can be met in our campus housing options and this approval is separate from academic accommodations.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's my network ID?

Your network ID is used to sign your contract and is the same as your Wavenet username, in all lowercase letters.

What if I have already picked out a roommate?

That's great! Just ask them what their screen name is and search for them within the portal. For more information on how to create roommate groups, please click here.

What if I do not have a roommate picked out?

That's fine! You'll be asked a series of questions about your lifestyle preferences and our software will recommend compatible roommates for you to choose from. You can message other students to ask whether they'd like to room with you. You can also choose not to link up with anyone and we will place you according to your lifestyle preferences.

Can I choose my suite-mates or a specific residence hall?

No, unfortunately, we cannot accommodate requests to be placed in a certain hall. However, students may create roommate groups of up to four people (two pairs of roommates) that will live in the same suite. The deadline to create a roommate group is July 3.

What if I cannot access the portal?

Please send an email to with your name, CWID, and a description or screenshot of the error message you have received. We will respond to emails as quickly as possible in the order that they are received. You can also call us at 310-506-7586 during business hours.

Please view our rates for our various living areas.

Do I have to live on campus?

Yes, all new and transfer students are required to live on campus per the University Residency Requirement.

How do I select a meal plan?
