Fall Semester Applicants:

Spring Semester Applicants:

  • You will receive your housing assignment via email from housing@oc.edu the 2nd week of December.
  • Please note that while it is our goal to place you in your preferred housing selection, the housing preference selected on your application is not guaranteed as it is based on room availability.

How Does The Housing Selection Process Work?

In order to create less stress for our incoming students, Residence Life has created an efficient, hassle-free process that allows the student to select the area they wish to live in and their roommate all within one simple application!

This system is set up to automatically place students in a room based on the housing preferences selected within their housing application. The system will then look at whether the student has a roommate group created, then ensure that roommate group is placed together.

What if you don't have a roommate? No worries! Our system allows you to search for students whose profiles are similar to yourself and then send them a roommate group invite. If you don't feel like looking for a roommate, we will do the work for you! By using the "Matching Profile" answers located within the housing application, our system is able to use that data to match you to a roommate with similar interests.
