Stay with the regular housing form. Multicultural housing can be somewhat... abrasive... for lack of a better word. Unless you're interested in some of the more eccentric people on campus.
Braun!!!!! It's uphill but there's AC and it has the best community
Definitely Newcomb. It's on lower campus and has AC
i just visited and they told me that you can live off campus as a senior but if you wanna stay on campus they never reject seniors of that

Living on campus at Occidental is definitely well worth it. The buildings are well-maintained, if not completely aesthetically pleasing, and people in every hall have a strong sense of community. Each dorm has its own personality, and even the “ugly” dorms such as Braun have people living there who wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. While some people do not like living on the upper part of campus, the small size of the campus makes it a moot point. Every dorm is an enjoyable place to live, and the high demand for on-campus housing every year is proof that living on campus is fun, enriching, and well worth the cost. The only problem is that with the increasing numbers of incoming freshmen, it’s incredibly difficult to get a room on campus.
Singles are the most coveted rooms on campus, especially by upperclassmen. Eight of Oxy’s dorms feature single rooms. Having a roommate can be a great experience because it teaches you a lot about yourself and others. Having a roommate can be difficult, but it is a great experience that deserves a fair chance and should be approached with an open mind. Most of what people enjoy about living on campus is the community, something that the school truly tries to foster with its Residence Life staff of students that live in the halls. Students that become active in their hall get the most enjoyment, and those that deal with roommate issues openly and maturely will have a better overall experience as well.
