Suite Room

HERE'S THE SECRET! Get the mini suites!! As someone who now lives off-campus, the location of any dorm (maybe except foothill because it's lowk uphill) is really not that bad. You'll likely have longer walks when you live off campus and you'll get used to it. There's so many stories about what happe...

To be honest, nobody's first choice is unit 2. Sure, it's only a few minutes farther than unit 1, but it's substantially farther than BW/Unit 3. It's not as far as Clark Kerr, but they have nicer amenities. I lived in a Cunningham Hall double in the corner room. It was a bit larger than the standard...

PROs: Cleanliness is typically not an issue, but that is due to the people I live with. Other cleanliness can be debated, one room on my floor had mold. Bathrooms are cleaned daily and my floormates tend to keep the bathroom clean. Being on the 7th floor is an issue when the elevator breaks down. Lo...

Other Room

Was in Wada Apartment facing the courtyard. My apartment layout was different than the rest of the floor as I lived with the RA which meant that we had 2 bathrooms instead of 1 and 3 rooms instead of 2. Because we were facing the courtyard we never got direct sunlight into our apartment which worked...

Broad range of difference in quality between the halls. Towle Hall was definitely on the upper end. People talking about high sociability were likely not on suite floors. Suites seem nice for the separate bathroom, but are far less social, especially if your suitemates don't end up as your friends. ...

I stayed in a triple and it was a small place for the three of us. The room's walls are thin and the halls common area is in okay condition. Bathrooms are pretty gross and definitely not the ideal place to be. I'd suggest staying away from the older dorms like Unit1,2,3 and going with the new dorms....

Triple Room

Honestly Berkeley dorms suck in general but are a significant part of the college experience. I stayed in Griffiths Hall in a triple and for the most part I had a positive experience. You are close to campus, near all the Southside businesses, greek row, good proximity to Elmwood. However the rooms...

It might depend on what building you were in. Some buildings had problems with elevators I was in Davidson and it was fine. Also be careful walking home at night. Avoid People’s Park.
