The best way to experience the vibrant Mills community is to live on campus. Because our students represent a wide range of ethnicities, backgrounds, ages, and interests, living together and drawing from that breadth of experience becomes part of the learning process. And, of course, it’s a great way to make lifelong friends.

Traditional-age, first-year students are introduced to the Mills community through a Themed Housing Community that is organized around a shared interest. Over the course of the fall term, faculty, students, and a specially assigned member of the Division of Student Life may attend lectures, films, museum exhibitions, or other extracurricular activities related to the central theme of your community.

Transfer, resumer, graduate, and continuing Mills students find a welcoming home on our lush, 135-acre campus, where they can enjoy residing in one of our historic Mediterranean-inspired halls or our Craftsman-style apartments.
