Lone Mountain East Residence Hall


Watch a tour of Lone Mountain East here!

San Francisco is many things: a tech epicenter, a cultural mecca, the most beautiful city in the world (in our minds, anyway). It’s also fairly small, land-wise: 49 square miles contains all that wonder. When space is at a premium, innovators have to get creative. And Dons are all about innovation. So, when we wanted to build a new residence hall in order to expand our student housing, we got creative and reconsidered how to use the spaces we already had. A parcel on Lone Mountain, consisting of underused tennis courts and auxiliary buildings, seemed like the perfect setting. When we landed on a building design that would work with the hilly topography and also satisfy our students’ educational and social needs, construction began. Lone Mountain East now stands ready to welcome Dons back to school in the fall.
