Hillside Hall


(2425 Prospect Street, Berkeley, CA 94704)

Welcome to Hillside Residence Hall!

One of our two buildings, Hillside offers unique welcoming features such as: large communal spaces, room to study, and a meal plan!

Built in 1994, this private dorm was once a lively sorority house but, in the early 2000’s, it was bought and converted into the thriving diverse student center it is today. Due to our partnership with ELS English Language Programs, you can think of this dorm as a smaller, more community based, International House, which is home to a wide range of students from every continent (Well… maybe not Antarctica…yet). Now for the more specific details!

Room Type

There are THREE types of rooms offered here at Hillside: Single, Double, and Quad.

Each room comes fully furnished with a bed, desk, dresser, closet, trash can, bed sheets, and desk lamp. The rooms, except for two single rooms, do not have their own bathrooms, and residents use large communal bathrooms that include showers, which are cleaned daily.

SINGLE: Each single room is unique, some come with bathrooms, whereas others are larger with no bathroom. There are only THREE official single bedrooms in our hall. However, it doesn’t hurt to ask if a room can be converted for a slightly higher rent. A single room is $1,500 dollars per 28 days.

DOUBLE: Like every room, our doubles come fully furnished for our residents, and it is our most popular, and common, room type. Getting to know roommates is one of the best aspects of dorm living, but we also recognize that personal space is key. Our doubles are quite spacious, so you won’t ever feel crowded or smothered. Doubles are $1,205 per 28 days.

QUAD: This room is for the social butterflies who are also looking to save some money! With nearly equal square footage per student as a double room, the quad is ideal for saving a few dollars and getting to know your neighbors even better. There are only three rooms of this type, so make sure you book it quick! Quads are 1,000 per 28 days.


Electricity, gas, water, and high speed wireless internet are included in the accommodation fee.
