Living At Mills
Students who've paid an enrollment deposit can submit Housing Applications through the online StarRez system, accessed through the Mills Portal. The Room Draw process for continuing students is also conducted through StarRez (visit the Room Draw and Lottery webpage for details).
You can access the online Housing Application under "Featured Services" in the Mills Portal, linked to here.
A one-time $250 application fee is required before the Housing Application can be accessed. Application fees will not need to be resubmitted by students who reapply for on-campus housing in the future, but the housing application fee is non-refundable. Application fees can be paid as the first step of the online Housing Application (accessed through the Mills Portal) or by cash, check, Visa, or MasterCard through the HMDS Office (by visiting Sage Hall 138 or calling 510.430.2127).
Summer 2015 and Academic Year 2015–16 applications will be available beginning April 1, 2015. The application deadline for summer housing is April 16, 2015. Summer housing is only available to students who will live in summer housing for at least 21 consecutive nights. At least 21 nights' notice must be given by students planning to move out mid-summer. Priority is given to full-summer applicants. Summer residents must meet at least one of the following criteria:
The priority housing application deadlines for 2015–16 are June 1, 2015, for first-year students, transfer students and entering graduate students (see the Room Draw page for application information for continuing students).
User guides for the 2015–16 application processes can be found here:
We also offer January Term housing for students that have registered for January Term but live off campus or in a Traditional Residence Hall. The January Term Housing Application/Agreement can be found here. It is a paper application and needs to be submitted to HMDS by TBD.
