Why HNU?

You’ll feel the difference from day one

From our beautiful hilltop setting, we celebrate diversity, support each other wholeheartedly, and strive to reach our full potential. As soon as you join our close-knit community, you’ll know you’re somewhere special.

Our History

A proud past

In 1868, six Sisters of Holy Names arrived in Oakland with the dream of providing educations for the poor. And we’ve been keeping their dream of service alive ever since.
