Residence on Fifth Apartments

The Residence on Fifth, also known as "the Rez," is a first-year apartment building in the Oakland community. Residents have their own kitchens and bathrooms in addition to lots of great common and programming space. The Rez has a newly renovated movie room, computer cluster, wireless Internet, laundry facilities, a piano room, central air-conditioning, and an exercise room, and there are lots of great nooks and crannies for studying. Residents spend a lot of time in the lounges and on the first floor, creating a close-knit community.
