Looking for a full, enriched, college experience?

OCC's four residence halls are "Living Learning Communities," where the students choose their neighbors based on common interests or majors. Being part of a Living Learning Community is a great way to make new friends, join study groups, and enjoy your time at OCC in and out of the classroom. 

Room Selection

Students also have the choice of living in a single room (by themselves,)  double room (with a roommate,) or triple room (with two roommates.) 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.
