Virtually all entering freshmen live in university housing. The residence halls provide students with a meal plan, Academic Services Centers, live-in faculty and residential assistants, security monitoring programs, live-in health workers, computing centers, tutoring, and a community that cares about the academic success of our students. Berkeley also offers a Theme Program experience which allows students to benefit from being a part of a smaller community of people with similar interests and identities.
Berkeley maintains a commitment to making housing available for students. The recent addition of the 752-bed Blackwell Hall and a concerted campus effort to address the housing crunch have improved the availability of housing for students in their first year at Berkeley and beyond.
