Dorm Rooms and Shower Facilities
Each room contains:
- bed with mattress, bed sheets, blanket, pillow, and pillowcase
- small refrigerator
Some rooms also have a microwave.
Bathrooms and showers are communal and located centrally on the floor. The rooms do not have personal showers, so bathrobes, personal toiletries, shower shoes, etc are recommended to make your bathroom experience comfortable.
Wi-fi is serviceable throughout campus and there are internet and printing services available in the computer lab on the same floor.
The San Francisco Bay Area has foggy nights and mornings, so it's a good idea to bring cozy pajamas, extra socks, sweaters, and possibly extra blankets if you tend to be cold at night. Remember that you will be staying in dormitory rooms, so anything you feel you should bring from home to warm up the place, bring it!
Summers in Oakland are moderate, so pack layers - shirts, tank tops, jackets, shorts, pants, etc. just to be safe and comfortable.
Eating on campus
The cafeteria offers a wonderful menu. At breakfast, you are able to order a lunch/dinner for pick-up at the lunch hour, if you like. There is also a grocery store and and a few restaurants within walking distance down the hill. Pizza, Chinese, Cafe as well as the grocery deli will help you find meals on the weekends when the campus cafeteria is closed.
How to check-in, and what to expect
Upon entering the gate, head to Durocher Hall, located at the top of campus, to the right of the chapel. We suggest asking for directions at the gate!
You will find the "Residence Life Front Desk Office" around the corner to the right after you enter the building. It is open 8am - 11pm every day, and the person at the desk will have your name and room key. If no one is at the desk, please call the RA at (510) 436-1627, and they will help you to your room.
