Housing, Dining, and Catering


Oberlin College offers a diverse selection of residential options—from large traditional residence halls to small, cozy homes. In order to accommodate the varied tastes of its students, the Oberlin Residence Hall system includes traditional residence halls, Program Houses that are based on specific interests, as well as cooperative residences where students share cooking, housekeeping, and maintenance tasks.
