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).
