Launch Stern Residence Hall

About the Residence Hall

  • Welcomes womxn-identified students.
  • Nestled in the Berkeley hills next to the Foothill complex on the northeast side of campus. Especially convenient to STEM buildings including the College of Engineering.
  • A quiet area with easy access to nature and hiking trails.
  • Includes both traditional residence hall and suite-style housing.
  • Residence hall rooms include single, double and triple rooms; suites have double bedrooms. (Single rooms are reserved for students with ADA accommodations.)
  • Bathrooms: Shared community bathrooms in residence halls; each suite has its own shared bathroom.
  • Nearest dining commons: Foothill Dining Commons (located next to Stern)
  • Theme Program: Stern’s second floor houses the Empowering Womxn in STEAM (WISE) program, which welcomes interested students who experience life through the lens of womxn in body, spirit, and identity- past, present, future, and fluid. As a result, the second floor is designed to be inclusive of transgender and gender-fluid or nonbinary students.
