About the accommodation

The residence halls are conveniently located within a few minute walk from classes, cushing library, computer labs, the dining hall, the athletic facilities, and many social activities. All residence halls are also located within minutes of any faculty or administrative offices, making it convenient to find any needed assistance. Durocher Hall is home to the student-residents age 21 and over. The B-Level is a 24-hour quiet floor, which houses mainly employees of the school and students who prefer a quiet living environment. Dunn Hall is the home of residents under the age of 21. The students live in a semi-coed environment, in that on second, third, and fifth floors one wing is male residents and the other wing is female residents. The fourth floor is an all female floor. Hawk's Nest is a community game room set up for student entertainment and relaxation. Students can hang out on the couches watching TV or a movie on the new state of the art video/sound system, play pool, foosball, or ping pong with friends, or hold a club meeting or event in more comfortable surroundings. A small courtyard adjacent to the Hawks Nest is also a great place to sit and chat while enjoying the great Bay Area weather. Three meal plans are available for student residents as part of the room and board contract. The 19 meal plan offers breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays, and brunch and dinner on Saturdays and Sundays when the university is in session.
