All your questions about housing can be answered by browsing the sites below or by contacting the Berkeley Summer Sessions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1 510-642-5611.
There are many excellent reasons to visit or stay in the Berkeley area and a wide selection of accommodations are available for the summer student. Many UC Berkeley students leave in late May, making a number of summer sublets available. Descriptions and applications for both the University Residence Halls and International House are available here. If time is an issue, you can try calling them directly. If you plan on bringing a car you should be aware of the parking options. Other housing possibilities are described below.
University Students' Cooperative Association
The Students' Co-op is a non-profit, low-cost living group owned and operated by students. With fifteen group living houses and three apartment complexes in the immediate campus area, the Co-op accommodates 1,200 students and offers a unique opportunity to meet others, participate in group decision-making, and develop self-responsibility. During the summer all houses but one are co-ed, and one house is reserved for UC graduate and re-entry students. In addition to paying rent, all members work a few hours a week. Admissions are generally on a first-come, first-served basis, but special admission priority is given to disabled students. Summer residents who will also be registered students in the Fall will have priority for Fall Co-op admissions. Write or call for more information: USCA, 2424 Ridge Road, Berkeley, CA 94709; (510) 848-1936.
