The Residential Life Office supports the University of California's mission by fostering co-curricular opportunities and providing quality facilities and services that enhance student growth and development in a residential living/learning environment.


All members of the University of California, Washington Center’s Residential Life Office are dedicated to student-centered programs, services, and interactions. We are committed to continuous learning. Our operating style is transparent and responsive to students' needs and interests through partnerships with students, families, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests.

The Residential Life Office endeavors to provide a safe, secure, healthy, clean, and well-maintained environment that supports learning beyond the traditional classroom boundaries. As a result of living at the Washington Center, students will further develop: academic skills, leadership skills, professional aptitude, personal skills, civic and community responsibility, and an understanding and appreciation of human differences.
