During the first few weeks of the semester, the demand for student housing often exceeds our intended capacity. When these circumstances arise, we utilize overflow housing options that we create by converting double rooms into triples and by assigning students to converted study rooms and lounges. Residents placed in overflow housing assignments will receive a 20 percent prorated discount on their housing for each day that they reside in a overflow room.
DSS determines which requests will be accepted and communicates this information to the Student Housing Office. If you’re approved for a housing accommodation through DSS, the Student Housing Office cannot guarantee that the approved accommodation will be provided due to space limitations. However, we will do our best to meet the needs of all DSS students. If you require any special housing accommodations because of a disability or chronic physical condition, contact Disability Support Services (DSS) at (310) 338-4216.
