Summer Housing



We have summer housing available!

Apply as soon as possible for Summer 2018 to have the best chance of getting the housing you want!

As one of Berkeley's largest student housing providers, the BSC offers 20 houses and apartment buildings to choose from.  Most are located very close to UC Berkeley- within 1 to 5 blocks of the Berkeley campus.

We have affordable housing in apartments, rooming houses, and room and board houses.

We rent to UC Berkeley summer session students, students at other schools, students on summer break, and returning members.

We have three Summer contract periods

Taking summer courses at UC Berkeley or in a Berkeley summer program?  Summer contract periods are designed to fit the UC Berkeley Summer Session schedule. You can sign for either the first half, 2nd half or the full summer. Dates for summer 2017 were (May 21 - July 1), the second half (July 2 - August 12), or the whole summer (May 21 - August 12).  Once the summer has started, you can still get housing for partial periods if there is still space available.
