Daily Life in the 42 Community

Dining

42 offers a cafeteria, known as the “Cantina” inside the dorms that offers affordable meals sold at cost and sourced locally. The 42 Cantina serves lunch and dinner Monday to Friday and the 42 Cafe within the Cantina serves coffee and pastries in the mornings. We accommodate various food diets, including vegetarian. The 42 Cantina, is always striving for quality meals, that is why we opt for organic produce, local and antibiotic-free dairy, and we source our meats from California, Oregon, and Washington, when available. Breads and rolls come from a bakery in San Francisco and we’ve started composting too. Salad dressings, sauces, and soups are made from scratch.

Housing

42 Dorms

The Nostromo Residence Hall is situated within 3 minutes walking distance of the main facility. Accommodation is provided rent-free with a minimal security deposit, and there are minimum hourly requirements to stay in the dorms.

Students who have not received a confirmation email that they have a dorm will not be given accommodation. If you have not received a dorm, please do not turn up to the program without an arranged living situation. 42 does not give out dorm spaces ad hoc or on the spot.

Dorm acceptance emails are released starting two months before a program or session begins. Applications take about 5-7 days to process.
