Whether you join us in the spring or fall, we offer a specialized orientation program for our transfers, which provides opportunities for socializing and learning about resources at Oxy.
Students who have preschool-aged children are also encouraged to look into options at our Child Development Center.
Oxy is a residential college that supports an integrated living and learning environment. The intellectual community of the institution extends to every residence hall on campus. To this end, we have adopted a policy requiring all students to live on campus for their first three years. Exceptions to this requirement are granted on a case-by-case basis. Transfer students may petition for a housing waiver by contacting Residential Education and Housing Services. Students with senior standing are exempt from the housing policy, and have the option of living on or off campus. (Please note we do not offer married student or family housing.)
