The Off-Campus Living Department is dedicated to supporting you in your transition to living off-campus.
Each of our ten residence halls, one off campus and nine on campus (including five living-learning communities), offers a unique way to connect with the university.
Lone Mountain East Residence Hall
Perched on the eastern edge of the Hilltop, Lone Mountain East is a new residence hall that overlooks the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, and Farallon Islands. Its two buildings connected by an aerial walkway create four separate interior courtyards, offering Dons the experience of independent city living alongside the convenience of being on campus.
Loyola Village Residence Hall
Situated on the north face of Lone Mountain, Loyola Village is a 136-unit condominium complex that offers apartment-style living within walking distance of the campus. Here mature students can begin the transition to independent off-campus living in a secure complex that houses other faculty, staff, and students.
The Office of Student Housing facilitates the development of skills, knowledge, and values required for socially responsible community living both on and off-campus. We are dedicated to creating diverse, safe, equitable, and inclusive communities that promote academic achievement.
