Webster Hall Apartments

Webster Hall is a great option for students who are seeking more independence. Students choose Webster for many reasons: the Oakland location, getting to cook their own meals, a great management team that is on top of maintenance concerns, and a friendly, committed RA staff that is passionate about creating a sense of community with programming and events but without cramping each resident’s individual style. Webster residents enjoy the range of programs offered - progressive dinners, career-readiness workshops, meditation sessions, and trips off campus to check out the awesome city surrounding us.

Located at 4415 Fifth Avenue next to Shirley Apartments, Webster Hall is part of the Oakland community. Housing Services leases one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. Laundry facilities, a fitness center, and a deli are available in the building.

Cable and Internet

Webster residents must do the following to login to WIFI:

  1. Reset the device. The Xfinity gateway has a physical reset button on the rear of the unit. To reset to factory default, you must hold down the button for at least 60 seconds. It take five minutes for the device to reboot and power on.
  2. Once powered on, the Xfinity gateway will broadcast the default wireless network name (SSID) that is on the side of the unit.
  3. Connect to that wireless network using the password printed on the side of the gateway.

If you are having any issues with this process, please refer to the Troubleshooting Guide.
