    2422 Ridge Rd
    Berkeley, CA 94709
    Wheelchair Accessible
     

    Casa Zimbabwe has gone through many incarnations over the years since its construction in the 1960s as both the first building designed specifically to be a student co-op, and the first in the nation to be co-ed.

    Currently, most members have lost count of the number of different lives CZ has led, but it is safe to say that the building, its… Read More

    Only UC Berkeley students are eligible to live in Cloyne. Substance-Free, Academic Theme.

    Cloyne Court opened fresh after renovations in Fall 2014 as the Substance-Free Academic Theme House.  Cloyne is the closest BSC house to the UC campus, but is also removed enough to offer respite from the hubbub of Berkeley.  Without the distraction… Read More

    Davis House

    2833 Bancroft Steps
    Berkeley, CA 94704

    Originally built in the late 19th century for the attorney of the storied Hearst Family, this resplendent manor was one of the first homes to grace Panoramic Hill. Just as close to campus as to a leisurely walk in the woods, Davis is a welcoming and comfortable retreat. Though we’re only thirty-six members large, our generous common areas lure us out of our rooms for late night snacks and conversations ranging from… Read More

    Euclid Hall
    14 Singles - 5 Doubles - 24 Residents
    1777 Euclid Ave
    Berkeley, CA 94709

    Euclid is one of the smaller houses, and correspondingly clean and mellow. We’re unique in that we have the highest single to double ratio in the co-ops - out of nineteen rooms, only FIVE are doubles. Yeah baby, do that delicious math in your head. We’re not so eager to compete for the crown of BEST MEGA PARTY HOUSE EVER!!! ...no, here at Euclid, we’re more about soirees. We’re like your favorite coffee house where… Read More

    2519 Ridge Road
    Berkeley, CA 94709
     

    Hoyt Hall is women identying only in the fall and spring, co-ed during the summer.

    We called it “stooping it”; the phrase essentially encapsulated my summer experience. Oddly enough we did everything on the stoop. We gardened, made art, breakfast, lunch, dinner, watched the sun rise and set in the warm Berkeley summer air. This past summer at Hoyt was the best summer I ever had. There… Read More

  • An image of Kidd Hall's front steps.

    Kidd Hall
    3 singles - 7 Doubles - 17 Residents
    2562 Le Conte Avenue
    Berkeley, CA 94709

    Childish and totally awesome at heart, Kidd is a happy-go-lucky house just two blocks from North Gate. Unique co-opers from all walks of life manage to fit into the occasionally quiet, but always welcoming and everchanging culture of the BSC’s smallest house. Kidds are so special, in fact, that there are only 17 of them in production at any time. With a great backyard, pool table, piano, TV, and study room there’s… Read More

    11 Singles - 18 Doubles - 1 Triple - 50 Residents
    1730 La Loma Ave
    Berkeley, CA 94709

    Kingman Hall, aka Toad Hall, when the weather is just so, is something of a resplendent Victorian manor lodged in the red wooded hills of North Berkeley. Ivy and Morning Glories creep along the sides of the house. It is a mere one block tumble from campus and the windy walks of the Rose Garden. A forest, a garden, a study, a place of vibrant, beating, and charmingly sordid history, it is a local landmark; birthed as a… Read More

    Wilde House is an LGBTQIA & Queer themed Co-op.

    Wickedly inspired, an ideal setting for all individuals seeking to live an exquisite life.

As America’s first… Read More

    11 Singles - 6 Doubles - 5 Triples - 38 Residents
    2420 Ridge Road
    Berkeley, CA 94709

    Ridge House is the perfect fit for people who are looking for a friendly atmosphere. Ridgelings know there is a good balance between respect for the needs of a student and appreciation of a well-deserved break. Ridge is a mid-sized house; we aren’t so big that you’ll still be meeting new Ridgelings at breakfast every morning, but there is always someone to hangout with. We don’t have many huge parties… Read More

    Stebbins Hall is home to students of all backgrounds: veteran co-op’ers and sophomores fresh out of the dorms, junior transfers and foreign exchange students, engineers and sun worshippers, kombucha brewers and vegan bakers, hikers and pole dancers, yogis and crossword fanatics, the gluten-intolerant and caffeine addicts -- Stebbins has them all.

    The king of the south, Wolf House (“Wolfhaus”) is the pinnacle of cooperative living.
