Through community and interactions, the Office of Housing & Residence Life promotes a living and learning environment that balances personal and academic growth and community well-being. We assist students in learning responsibility by holding them accountable for community standards.
Residence Life staff members are committed to helping residents create a positive living environment. Through programming and involvement in their community, students will be challenged and supported to develop their social, educational, recreational, and cultural understanding.
Living on campus is a unique opportunity to form new friendships and build strong ties with residents. Regardless of their origins and backgrounds, students are drawn together by their shared experiences in residential living.
Whether you are beginning your collegiate experience or continuing your education, the Office of Housing & Residence Life encourages you to consider the many benefits of campus living and invites you to join our residence life community. Please feel free to browse through each of the links to find out more information about Housing & Residence Life and the services we provide. Any questions or comments can be directed to us via email or phone at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 436-1500. Thank you!
New residential students for Spring 2015 can expect to receive their housing assignments by e-mail in late December or early January. New student move-in will take place from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Wednesday, January 7. On that day, residents should report to the Housing & Residence Life Front Desk, which is near the main entrance to Durocher Hall, to check-in and receive move-in materials.
All continuing students are permitted to move back in on January 11.
Please contact Director of Housing and Residence Life Justin Vacca with any questions or concerns.
