    University of California - Berkeley Off-Campus Housing Guide

    Living off-campus at UC-Berkeley can really add to your college experience. From making new friends to living with UCB roommates to managing your finances, you are certain to grow from this experience. For those students, thinking about UC-Berkeley off-campus housing, here is a go-to guide about Berkeley neighborhoods, restaurants, safety, transportation and more.

    Neighborhoods in Berkeley

    South Berkeley, near south campus, is an area rich with student activity. Undergrads tend to prefer this option for how close it is to campus and its proximity to other students. Southside/Telegraph Avenue is another area heavily populated with Berkeley students and businesses. From restaurants that offer student prices to secondhand clothing shops, this neighborhood is a hub for students. North Berkeley is another option that is quieter, but still is home for many students. Student co-ops and UCB apartments stand out among single-family units. Many graduate students choose to live in this neighborhood. Where you should live will really depend on what sort of neighborhood vibe you and your UCB roommates are looking for. Other neighborhoods popular among students are Albany, Oakland, El Cerrito and Richmond. While they are further from campus, they do offer reduced Berkeley rental costs in comparison to closer neighborhoods.

    Dining at Berkeley

    Berkeley provides plenty of dining options that cater to students’ hungry stomachs, from your typical fast food joints to local eateries. Ike’s Love and Sandwiches is a frequent for many Berkeley students. The enormous, stacked sandwiches are well-worth more than a single meal, as you can split each sandwich over the course of several meals without leaving yourself hungry. Artichoke Basille’s Pizza is another go-to spot for students, particularly for those late-night munchies. U-Cha is widely celebrated among Berkeley’s boba lovers. From milk tea and boba to fries and snow ice, U-Cha is the go-to place. If you’re out for a night on the town, Jupiter is the place to be. If it’s your birthday, mention it to your server for a free beer and a song to celebrate your special day.
