Graduate Students
Chapman University has limited housing available for graduate and law students. Students who are interested in living in one of our university owned properties should complete a Graduate and Law Student Housing Request Form. Housing is not guaranteed - students will be informed as early as late May/early June if we can accommodate them. Graduate and law students can also find alternative living arrangements off campus. Our Facilities and Off-Campus Housing Coordinator, Lauren Zlotecki, can assist with students seeking off-campus housing and can be reached at zlotecki@chapman.edu
