Stay on campus and make the most of every opportunity!

Frequently Asked Housing Questions:

What are the on-campus housing options?

Housing options range from "dorm-style" to apartments, and even RVs! Details and pricing can be found here.

Can my spouse and I be roommates?

Even though the rooms are for student housing during the school year, we do house married couples together during Harbor. Keep in mind that the beds are long, twin beds.

When do I know what my exact housing assignment will be?

Your specific room or apartment number will be emailed to you in April with detailed check-in and housing guidelines. Special requests, such as wheelchair accessibility and roommate requests, are always taken into account when assigning your room.

What sleeping arrangements do children have?

Families may register for standard housing admission for their children at the listed price or they may sleep on the floor in their parents' room, listed as "Youth Admission + Reduced Housing." You may wish to bring bedding and/or inflatable mattresses for those on the floor. Any open beds in that room will be available for booking by someone of the same gender.

What if I am coming alone and need on-campus housing?

If you are traveling alone, your preference may be a room in the Drescher apartments, which provides you a private room in an apartment with others of the same gender. If you prefer to be closer to the main campus, you are welcome to select another housing option and either request a roommate whom you know is also in that housing or a guest of the same gender may be assigned to the other bed in your room. If you prefer to have the room to yourself, you may want to purchase the other bed to avoid having a roommate.

What about wheelchair-accessible rooms?

Wheelchair-accessible rooms are available in:
- Towers (railings in showers and near toilets)
- Lovernich (railings in bathtubs and near toilets)

If a church, family, or ministry group comes, can we all stay together?

One of the joys many of our guests experience is staying with a group, whether it's a church group, a family reunion, or just good friends. Depending on what housing option you choose, you may need to register and pay for the whole group or have everyone register individually. Please make sure everyone's registration uses the same name to identify the group ("John Doe's group" or "Hillside Church").

Are there scholarships available for ministers and their families?

Need-based scholarships are available for Harbor 2018 to Church of Christ ministers and their families, made possible by President Andy Benton. Fill out the application here for consideration.

Is General Admission included in my Housing?

Yes, when staying on campus, your General Admission is included in your housing registration.

Can I arrive earlier or stay later in on-campus housing?

Since Pepperdine graduation takes place the Saturday directly before Harbor, housing is not available until Tuesday. And, since summer school begins the Monday following Harbor, we need every minute to prepare the campus for our students. Therefore, everyone must be moved out by Saturday at 10 AM.

Are the rooms fully furnished?

Since the rooms are typical college student rooms, they include long, twin beds, desks, and closets. Apartments also include refrigerators, ovens, and sinks. The rooms are not furnished with bed linens, bath towels, microwaves, clothing hangers, coffeemakers, or dishes. Linen sets can be requested by those unable to bring their own, which includes sheets, towels, a pillow, and a blanket. Please note that there is no air conditioning in the rooms; however, the breezes from the Pacific Ocean are usually sufficient to keep rooms cool.

Do I have to stay all four nights if I stay on campus?

Prices for housing are for the week; they are not prorated based on how many nights you are staying. However, you may choose to arrive later or check out early as your schedule dictates.

I registered for linens but don't see them listed in my confirmation. How do I know?

In the registration process, the request for linens was a Yes/No question therefore it would not show up as a paid item on your confirmation. If you're not certain how you responded to the question, please give us a call at (310) 506-4270.
