Office of Residential Life


Our mission is to foster a residential environment which encourages residents to develop a sense of personal accountability while maintaining a mutual respect for themselves; their peers and their local and global communities. Additionally, we strive to provide a space that supports their physical, emotional and spiritual wellness while challenging their academic, intellectual and social growth. By nurturing the whole student, we support the missions of Mills College and the Division of Student Life by providing a transformative living and learning experience.


The vision of Office of Residential Life (ORL) is to create a living environment that is supportive of academic excellence and personal growth while fostering the development of a socially responsible community.
