All About Housing

The residence halls at the University of Redlands are more than just a place to rest your head at night. Living in a hall will expose you to a diversity of individuals, ideas, and cultures, all under one roof. Your experiences will be one of the keys to a broader and more enriching life, not during your time at the University of Redlands, but long after.

Redlands has a variety of living environments from which to choose. The residential facilities vary in architectural style and capacity. If you are a Johnston student you are strongly encouraged to live "on complex", in Bekins or Holt Halls. Take a look at the residence hall descriptions to explore the possibilities.

The Residence Life and Housing Staff are dedicated to building lasting communities of learning. They contribute to a positive collegiate and holistic experience for every resident on campus by providing guidance on a variety of topics and planning educational, social, and developmental programs. They also see to it that the halls are comfortable and conducive to academic achievement. Students are invited and encouraged to get involved and work with the hall staff in planning the use of the residence hall activity funds allocated each semester to make the most of their new living environment.

As a result of the University's commitment to being a residential campus, all students are required to live on campus and to participate in a University meal plan for as long as they are a student unless they are 23 years of age or older, living with immediate relatives or legal guardians within 30 miles of campus, or are married or in a domestic partnership . Please note, housing is not guaranteed for students under the age of 16 or over 23 years old and only provided if space is available. Only students who have received off campus approval from Residence Life and Housing are exempt from the housing and meal requirement.

All new students will complete the New or Transfer Student Housing Intention Form on their MyRedlands Housing Portal. The portal is located on the top toolbar of the MyRedlands webpage. Remember, most rooms are double and triple occupancy, and there are a limited number of singles and quads. While students will share with us their housing preferences, please understand we cannot guarantee community or room size. We ask students and their families to keep an open mind, as we do our best to meet the needs and wishes of all students. Many students who request doubles or quads will be assigned to triple rooms based on availability of space. Residence hall assignment confirmations are sent via your Redlands email account in early July, with information about specific room and roommate(s) placement to follow in early August. For students starting in the spring semester, housing assignment confirmations are sent near the end of December.

Should you have any kind of medical accommodation needs to be considered in your housing placement, please refer to and complete the Accommodations Packet.
