Oberlin is a four-year residential college and we believe that living and eating together fosters a strong community.

From the time you arrive on campus to when you leave for a semester break, for the summer, or upon graduation, the Residence Life staff strives to make the housing registration process straightforward and stress-free. The challenge for you? Choosing where you want to live. 

Our arrival and departure dates coincide with important dates throughout the academic year to allow sufficient time for you to ease into your transition to and from college living.
