Welcome to Odessa College Residence Life!


Our Residence Life is comprised of two student housing facilities.

Century Commons is an on-campus facility with space for over 200 students and provides an apartment-style living arrangement with private bedroom space for each occupant. Each apartment is fully furnished, and residents share a common living area and kitchen. Students may choose either a four-bedroom/two bath or two-bedroom/one bath arrangement, based on availability. This is a coed facility with each apartment separated by male and female students.

Wrangler Hall is a suite style on-campus facility providing space to 26 male students.  Each student is housed with one roommate and will share a bathroom with another suite of students.  This space is normally reserved for our rodeo athletes.

The experience of living on campus while attending college provides students with an environment for learning and growth that goes beyond the classroom experience. Students who live in a on-campus residence facilities have expanded opportunities to learn about interpersonal relationships, personal planning and time management, problem solving, and the benefits of cooperation. Research suggests that students who live on campus have better grades and matriculate at a higher rate than their off-campus peers.
