Since it was built a while ago the rooms are pretty huge for a dorm, especially compared to the other dorms on campus. My Triple in Clark Kerr was 2x the size of an average triple for the same price. The location is very nice since you are in a pretty secluded neighborhood in the Berkeley hills arou...

I live in a double suite with seven people in Clark Kerr and have had a mixed experience. The culture is definitely completely different from the rest of Berkeley, there are a lot of people from socal who are in Greek life, and it's definitely the least racially diverse dorm at Berkeley. I've found...

Sick experience living here because it was far from campus and felt like it had its own culture. Though I felt like I wasn't the most outgoing person, it was easy to make friends at the dining hall and within the buildings as a result of the happiness of the people there. Though some of the amenitie...

Best dorm ever ! Clark Kerr has huge rooms and are very spacious. The walking distance to campus isn’t bad / bus stop is right in front of Clark Kerr.

I lived in the global theme housing program at Clark Kerr in my spring semester. Even though the location is far from my Northside morning classes, it is pretty nice and spacious. The food is excellent with outdoor seating and a large indoor dining hall. Bathrooms and showers are really clean. Peopl...

Yes, Clark Kerr is far, but it has various good qualities. I usually ate at crossroads, but that was just because there were more options there (the food quality at Clark Kerr is just as good). It was the cheapest option for me since I lived in a quad. Living in a quad was actually super fun since t...

Clark Kerr has some of the largest rooms compared to other units. You don’t have to check in whenever you come in buildings which is a plus (residents in the units usually have to check in with ID after certain hours). The walk to campus isn’t too bad. The only con is that it can feel isolating from...

Absolutely the best dorm available at Berkeley. Amazing natural setting, great rooms, unique amenities, etc. It had everything I could ever want in a form.

I absolutely loved living in Clark Kerr; however, this might depend on your roommate(s)/floormate(s) situation and your personal living preferences. The Clark Kerr dorm rooms are the biggest compared to the other dorms, so if you want your personal bed (as opposed to bunk beds) with lots of space/st...
