Eligibility and Application Procedure

All students admitted to UC Hastings College of the Law are eligible for residency at McAllister Tower.

Once admitted to UC Hastings, students are eligible to apply for an apartment in the Tower. Apartments are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once assigned an apartment, students are permitted to live in the Tower for all three years of study.

Due to the limited number of apartments, new students who are interested in residing at McAllister Tower are encouraged to apply immediately following acceptance to UC Hastings. A $300.00 NON-REFUNDABLE processing fee is required to be submitted with the application form. The processing fee will be applied towards first month’s rent when an apartment is assigned. The fee is non-refundable if the student withdraws his or her application.

Online payments via credit card are accepted by clicking on this link https://uchastings.webconnex.com/tower-rent.

Apartment Assignments

Students who complete the application and submit the processing fee will be assigned an apartment in the order that applications are received. Students are encouraged to indicate the size of unit they prefer. Every effort will be made to satisfy the stated preference.

Term of Occupancy

The term of occupancy is from August through May, unless otherwise agreed upon. Further details are provided in the rental agreement. Arrangements may be made for summer occupancy.

Deposits and Due Dates

  • Upon room assignment, students must remit first month’s rent (less $300 non-refundable processing fee).
  • If the student does not remit payment by the designated day, the apartment will be reassigned and the $300.00 processing fee will be forfeited.
  • Leases will be signed upon arrival at McAllister Tower.
