The Commodore


The Commodore is located at 825 Sutter, across  from the International House at 860 Sutter. Offering double occupancy rooms, this building houses First Year students and requires a meal plan.

Each student room features standard furnishings, a walk-in closet, and full bath and shower. Common areas include a study room, a recreation room with big screen TV, computer kiosks, common microwaves, a common refrigerator, coin-operated laundry, and a large lobby with seating areas.

Built in 1928 as a merchant seaman hotel, the Commodore has a whimsical eye for Neo-Deco styling and luxury liner details.

Located in the heart of the downtown area, three blocks west of Union Square and at the foot of Nob Hill, The Commodore is a short walk to the world-famous cable cars, shopping, restaurants and theaters. Nearby are many Academy buildings in Nob Hill and downtown, including two dining halls, our gym, and a shuttle stop.

All students living in this building are required to purchase a platinum, gold, or silver meal plan.
