Congratulations on your admission to Pepperdine! We welcome you to the Pepperdine community. Housing and Residence Life is here to help you arrange housing and food services on the Malibu campus. We want to help you become part of our active Community and to discover the full benefit of living on Pepperdine's campus. Through all our resources, we hope to assist you in transitioning to college life.

Pepperdine Housing and Residence Life will use its newly implemented software (introduced last year) that is powerful, analytical, interactive, and easy to use for the Class of 2018. HRL is putting the power of choice in your hands! The web-based site allows you to pick your roommates and your room all online. As early as June 1st you will be able to login and create your profile at pepperdine.roommategateway.com and connect/link up with your roommate. If you don't have a roommate, please use the database and start looking, as you will need to have you and another (2 people) to get priority (priority is first come first serve - similar to concert tickets or picking an airplane seat) in selecting your room of choice.  On July 7th the room selection portal will open and students who have paired up with roommates will get to select their double or triple room in freshmen houses.

To help introduce you to our selection system we have created tutorial videos on our website which you can watch and see how to set up your profile, connect with roommates, and select your room.  You can view these videos on our website here.

New students are assigned to suite-style halls and are given Meal Plan B. Students may request to increase their meal plan by sending us an e-mail from their Pepperdine account. (Note: meal plan increases will result in an additional charge)

We look forward to meeting you.
