Casa Zimbabwe has gone through many incarnations over the years since her 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, CZ is a low-income safe space for bad babes, bros and queers of all colors to come together and bring the best out of each other for our communities.

Housing 124 students atop the “Holy Hill” of Berkeley, less than a block north of campus, the building resides in the subdued atmosphere of Northside, surrounded by several beautiful churches and seminaries.

CZ has, wholly through the initiative and enthusiasm of its members, been cared for and maintained in style. Go from working out on Ito's to sunbathing atop the watermelon on the study roof, interacting with the art and artists that fill the walls of Casa Z day to day along the way. Tend to your rooftop or courtyard garden between pole dancing in the common room, dance the night away then join your housemates in late-night culinary hijinks. Enjoy the ringing of the Campanile and the soothing sounds of your housemates' piano practice in the RedRum. Revival is always at CZ, and she's not going anywhere.
