Muir Houses


John Muir College is one of the sixth colleges at UC San Diego. It is currently home to about 1600 students. There are two residence halls, Tenaya and Tioga, and two sets of apartments, Tuolumne and the newly built Tamarack.

Muir residential halls and apartments are divided into houses to create a community among the residents. Each house has two house advisors who help plan programs and events for their residents. Muir also has three themed houses geared at catering to specific shared interests of the residents: Wellness House (B), Cultural House (F), and Wilderness House (G).
