Oxy (shorthand for "Occidental College") welcomes LA-bound interns to spend the summer with us. You’ll enjoy the best of both worlds: Oxy’s small campus provides an affordable, clean and laid-back home-base while you take care of business on weekdays. When you’re ready to unwind, our hip urban location offers easy access to every epic scene Los Angeles has to offer. Whether your goal is an in-depth comparison of authentic ramen noodles, or to visit every beach in LA (impossible!), living at Oxy puts it all within reach.
"I always found the facilities and dorms were clean and in order which was very nice. Conference services was always very willing to help me out and everyone I interacted with who was apart of the Oxy staff was very pleasant."

things to do around Los Angeles
Coolest neighborhood in the WORLD? Yep… that’s what TimeOut says. Oxy is nestled on the border between the Eagle Rock and Highland Park neighborhoods of Los Angeles. You’ll be steps from York Boulevard, with its vegan cafes, live music, third wave coffee houses, handsome cocktail spots, vintage vinyl shops, and buzzing food truck scene. Catch the Gold Line and explore all of LA… from sandy beaches and canyon hiking trails, to world-class museums and shopping galore. Still want more? How about scuba diving off Catalina Island or a weekend trip to Joshua Tree National Monument (1.5 hours away)? Los Angeles awaits you.
