Looking for a full, enriched, college experience?

Living in the residence halls is a great way to make new friends, join study groups, and enjoy your time at OCC in and out of the classroom.  OCC also has special interest housing available including communities for Social Justice, Health & Wellness, Music, and Gender-Neutral Housing.

Did you know that students who live in the residence halls: 

•    Have a higher retention rate
•    Have a higher rate of transfer and bachelor’s degree completion.
•    Are more engaged in class
•    Are more involved with campus activities
•    Are more satisfied with their college experience
•    Experience greater personal growth and intellectual development.


Room Selection

Students also have the choice of living in a single room (by themselves,) or a double room (with a roommate). Room size impacts cost, with single rooms costing the most, and triple rooms costing the least.

Aside from living near students who share your hobbies or major, you're also welcome to request to be housed with a specific person, or people, on your housing application.  Residence Life cannot guarantee that they'll be able to honor your request, but they'll definitely try their best.
