UC Sunnydale Exterior

University of California, Sunnydale abbreviated UC Sunnydale or UC☼D (with a sun symbol) was the local university in Sunnydale. It was a part of the University of California system. It was presumably destroyed along with the rest of Sunnydale by following the Battle at the Hellmouth.

It also served as a front for the activities of members of The Initiative which was located beneath the campus.

Campus residences

Residence Halls

  • Stevenson Hall - Buffy Summers' and Willow Rosenberg's dorm rooms where located at Stevenson Hall. Buffy originally shared a dorm room with the Mok'tagar Demon Kathy Newman, but Kathy was shortly replaced by Willow when her father forcibly returned her to their dimension.[1] Buffy then moved out of her dorm room in late 2000[2] while Tara Maclay moved in with Willow. They lived here with two pets, the rat Amy Madison and the kitten Miss Kitty Fantastico. In 1999, Willow met D'Hoffryn for the first time for a failed proposition to recruit her as a Vengeance demon.[3] In 2001, the hell-god Glorificus came to Stevenson Hall to get her revenge on Willow. There she discovered that Dawn Summers was the mystical Key. Glory then chased after Buffy and Glory until she was hit by a truck outside the building. Glory destroyed two walls during the encounter, one entirely of Willow and Tara's dorm room and the other making a hole in one of walls of the commons room.[4] In this room, Warren Mears stuck a Chip of Temporal Disturbance on Buffy to distort her temporal perceptions. As such, time passed by faster around Buffy than for others students.[5] Dark Willow was here to use Tara's clothes for a spell to locate her murderer, Warren.[6]
  • Dunwirth Hall - Where Eddie's dorm room was located, though his room's contents were stolen by vampire Sunday's gang, all except for Eddie's copy of Of Human Bondage.[7]
  • Fischer Hall [7]
  • Kresge Hall - Where Parker Abrams' dorm room was located.[1]
  • Weisman Hall[7]
  • Porter Hall[8]

Fraternities

  • Psi Theta -

    The Psi Theta house in 1999

    Sunday and her gang nested on Psi Theta since the eighties after it lost its charter in 1982, causing it to be closed for renovation. However zoning issues dragged on before the Sunnydale city council and renovation never took place. Sunday's gang resided there until 1999 when Buffy and her friends killed Sunday and several of her gang while some fled. During its tenure under Sunday's inhabitance, it was filled with the property of several students that Sunday killed or sired, stealing it from their dorm rooms and placing a fake note claiming they left the college due to stress.[7]

    Alpha Delta Frat House

  • Alpha Delta - A party was held on Halloween in Alpha Delta house by its members (dubbed the "Alpha Delts") who summoned the fear demon Gachnar whose influence caused the reality within the building to be altered, reflecting any resident's fears. This eventually stopped when Buffy accidentally brought Gachnar forth and then killed him. Some of the "Alpha Delts" included Edward, Chaz and Josh.[9]

  • Lowell House - The Lowell House was originally known as Lowell Home for Children, a home for adolescent orphans ran by Genevieve Holt between 1949 and 1960. During that time the children were subjected to physical and pyschological abuse at the hands of Genevieve who, as a strongly conservative religious woman, used this as a means of repressing any sexual freedom. By 1999, it was turned into a fraternity house and the Initiative's research laboratory was built below the building where many of its agents resided there as students. The secret lab could be reached through a hidden elevator which was be accessed behind a mirror through a retina scan of any Initiave members wanting to enter. In 2000, the orphans' raw emotions manifested as poltergeists during a party where they began giving any party-goers the same treatment subjected to the orphans. This was prevented by Xander Harris and Anya Jenkins.[10] Some of the fratboys at the Lowell House included Riley Finn, Forrest Gates and Graham Miller
  • Unidentified fraternity - In 2002, all members of an unidentified fraternity were killed by a Grimslaw Demon. It was conjured by Anyanka because of Rachel's wish. However, Anya reversed their deaths, unintentionally causing both the death of her friend Halfrek by her patron D'Hoffryn and her own return to humanity.[11]

Sororities

  • Beta Delta Gamma - Melody's pledge was accepted to the Beta Delta Gammas which was celebrated at Jack's college bar. Another member included Paula.[12]

  • Library - Spacious and orderly, the UC Sunnydale library was bigger than the one in Sunnydale High; due to its size it was sometimes difficult to find certain books. The library was particulary used to find information on Lowell Home for Children's history[17] and Queller demons.[18] Buffy and Willow met Riley Finn for the first time here. Tara informed Willow here about Oz's capture by the Initiative.[19] Three years later, Willow was visited by the First Evil in Cassie Newton's form.[20]
  • Lab room - This lab room was used by Willow to prepare a spell against Oz and Veruca. Veruca was killed here by Oz when she attempted to kill Willow.[21] Willow also used the room to create a potion to cure Buffy's madness after she was attacked by a Glarghk Guhl Kashmas'nik demon.[22]
RocketCafe

Buffy at the Rocket Cafe

  • Rocket Cafe - The student dining facility. Xander once ate there on one of the tables despite not being a student.
  • The Grotto - A college coffee shop. Willow confronted Parker here after his one-night stand with Buffy and the two ending up having a long conversation.
    TheGrotto

    Parker and Willow at the Grotto.

    Just as Willow started to understand Parker, he attempted to flirt with her only for her to see right through him. Then a group of students, made into pre-humans due to Black Frost beer, attacked the Grotto and accidentally set it on fire with Willow, Parker and several other students still inside. Buffy, having drank the Black Frost beer, entered the building and rescued everyone. It was then that the fire brigade came and hosed down the building.[12]
  • Jack's Bar - A college bar owned by Jack. In 1999, Xander got employed here as a bartender through a fake ID. The bar was popular with arrogantly intellectual fratboys who mocked the people that worked there. Jack became tired of this so with the help of his brother-in-law, a warlock, he cursed the favored drink Black Frost which would make anyone who drank it turn into primitive savages. Among those who drank the Black Frost were Buffy, Colm, Hunt, Roy and Kip.[12]
