New Students

ADVISEMENT: University of the Pacific is not partnered or affiliated with Roomsurf to assist with roommate matching. If you receive any communication from Roomsurf please do not respond. Please pass this along to other Pacific students.

In order to apply for housing, you must be admitted and confirm your intention to enroll at Pacific. We encourage you to respond and make your decision early to attend Pacific. Assignments for new students are completed based on the priority established by the date when you confirmed and paid your deposits. While assignment preferences are not guaranteed, you will receive priority for your preferred locations.

Selecting Housing for the 2020-2021 Academic Year
If you are interested in living on campus, you must first confirm with the University of the Pacific. Once confirmed, you will need to access InsidePacific, and enter the Housing Portal to complete all requests for living on campus.

 For more information based on your student type, please see below.

We are currently working on updating our marketing materials! If you would like to see our materials from previous years, they are available below:

2017-2018 Campus Living Brochure  (Click here for PDF) 

First Year Students
As First Year Student (first time freshman), you are required to live on campus unless you live within a 50 mile radius from the Stockton campus. About 80% of our incoming first-year students live on-campus. All of our residential buildings are smoke-free. Additionally, the buildings feature high-speed WIFI and cable through XFINITY On Campus, Ethernet, laundry facilities, and social lounge spaces. Information about housing can be found in the  2017-2018 Housing Brochure. During your confirmation process, you should have paid the $200 Confirmation Rent Payment. In addition to this payment, you will need to complete your housing preferences and Student Housing Agreement by June 1, 2020.

Transfer students 
Every year we are encouraged to see more and more transfer students joining our on-campus communities. Apply early as spaces are not guaranteed. Students interested in Housing for Fall 2020 will need to submit a Housing Placement Application. Once the Application has been processed, you will be instructed to submit the Student Housing Agreement.

Professional Pharmacy
Students live in Chan Family Hall (priority for Professional, Graduate, and Health Sciences students). Students can submit a Housing Placement Application for Chan Family Hall. Placements will be made after March 1st for Fall 2020. Please contact Residential Life & Housing for more information.

Family Housing 
Students who wish to be considered for Family Student Housing must contact Residential Life & Housing as soon as possible. Space is very limited. 

Summer Housing
Housing is available to students taking classes during the summer. If interested in  Summer Housing, please complete the Summer 2020 Housing Agreement, once available.

Roommate Requests
If you have a specific requested roommate, you will need their name and student ID number to complete the Assignment and Roommate Request section of the online process.  All requests must be mutual, and are not guaranteed. If you do not have a specific request, fill out the roommate matching questions. Residential Life & Housing will work to match you up with a roommate based on your preferences.

Single Room Requests
Students who are interested in residing in a single room must submit a Single Room Request. In addition, the student must submit a written statement or provide medical documentation in regards to the need for a single room. If you need any special accommodation, please contact our office.

Confirmation Rent Payment
The Confirmation Rent Payment is required for all new students applying for on-campus housing.  This payment may be submitted online through the new student confirmation process. You will receive this information in your letter of admission to the university. Assignment priority is determined based on the date the deposit is received by the Pacific.  Once you enroll in classes, approximately 1-2 weeks after the start of the semester, your Confirmation Rent Payment is applied toward your housing charges.  If you do not enroll at Pacific, your Confirmation Rent Payment is refundable until May 1 each year. After May 1, the deposit will be applied as a cancellation fee and is not refundable. For more information, contact Residential Life & Housing at 209.946.2331 or
