Make Yourself at Home.

Set on a lush 135-acre campus in the Oakland foothills, Mills offers an expansive, natural environment with access to a major metropolitan area. Living on campus will give you a home base that is at the center of the action and connect you with the people and resources that will help you flourish.


You’ll find a range of safe and secure housing options, from traditional residence halls to family apartments, all set on a beautiful residential campus. 


The meals at Mills are good to eat and good for the planet. We source local and organic ingredients as much as possible, and cook from scratch in small batches to keep our dishes fresh and healthy.

Residential Life

We have a dedicated Office of Residential Life whose goal is to support your academic experience with an equally transformative living experience in our residence halls.

Safety & Transportation

Mills has one of the most secure campuses in the San Francisco Bay Area. A variety of safety and transportation programs help ensure you’ll feel at home 24/7.
