Living in Berkeley as a Student

Looking for Berkeley apartments for students that put the funk in functional? You really don’t need to avert your gaze from the immediate environs of UC Berkeley, where you’ll find the gated glory of the city. While you do so, why not learn everything you possibly can about the exciting place you’re about to call home?


Situated by the SanFran Bay Area, Berkeley’s the not-so-humble bragger of a long list of things that make America great. From world-changing political movements, annual events that’ll leave you with a pleasant case of clogged calendar, and rooftop restaurants equally famous for brews and views, to supercharged shopping districts and top-of-the-line food halls to fulfill your organic pantry needs, this city is as delightful as it is offbeat.


The best part hands down is UC Berkeley, though – a 178-acre magnum opus that glows with every shade of green in its landscape, not to mention the seriously spectacular architecture and enough ‘hiding’ spots to keep the adventurer in you guessing for ages. It ain’t called the unofficial ‘Central Park’ for nothing, you know.
