South Mountain Residence Halls

South Mountain Residence Halls

Located closest to the campus core, these residence halls are also known as the red bricks. All six halls have a game room, laundry room and study lounge as well as a front desk and community kitchen. Halls provide double- and triple-occupancy accommodations with community-style bath facilities. Each hall has three stories with two wings on each floor.  Hall wings and bathrooms are separated by gender unless the student specifically requests gender inclusive housing.

The six halls are:

• Trinity Hall
• Santa Lucia Hall
• Muir Hall
• Sequoia Hall
• Fremont Hall (currently closed)
• Tenaya Hall
