Although it is recommended that you stay in University Housing for your first year, below are
housing estimates and links for low-cost housing options for UC Berkeley students. If you have
financial constraints, living at one of the following residences (all walking distance from
campus) might be a good alternative. Contact the respective sites for more information.

Student Co-operative Housing: Rochdale and Fenwick Weaver’s Village
The apartments (Rochdale and Fenwick) don’t come with meals, so they cost less than the
cooperative houses. You should be aware that it is very unlikely to be assigned to an apartment
for your first semester as a Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC) member although being
assigned for summer housing is common. The apartments’ rent differs depending on how many
bedrooms the apartment has, as well as the apartment complex.
