Since 2012, it has functioned exclusively as one of only four federal prisons for women in the US (the other three are Aliceville, AL, Tallahassee, FL, and Waseca, MN).. FCI Dublin incorporates three separate buildings with double-celled units for housing inmates. It is located near the Santa Rita Jail, which is operated by Alameda County. Additional facilities include a special housing unit, a detention center, and a minimum-security satellite camp. Security measures prioritize preventing escape attempts through a double perimeter fence system reinforced with razor wire and electronic sensors.

For offenders who will give birth during their incarceration, there are two programs offered to assist are often these mothers before, during, and after childbirth; these include Mothers and Infants Together (MINT) and the Residential Parenting Program (RPP). The MINT Program is a community residential program that aims to assist offenders during the last two months of pregnancy. Eligible inmates are transferred to a Residential Reentry Center and remain there for up to three months after birth to bond with their children before returning to the institution to complete their sentence. Inmates may be permitted to stay longer. MINT locations include Dublin, CA.
