Student Housing

The Penticton campus does not have on-campus student housing at this time; however, there are several community resources available for students looking for housing options in the South Okanagan area.

As a service to students, Okanagan College compiles a list of Penticton and area rental listings for students. This list is updated weekly. Newest listings are added to the bottom.
