Student Development and Campus Life

Student Housing

Living on campus greatly enhances your experience here at Berkeley College by providing many opportunities to get involved. Campus living is a wonderful experience in a friendly community that fosters personal growth, exchange of ideas, and independence. It also provides innumerable opportunities to live with others different from yourself, to become a leader, to improve communication skills, to manage conflict successfully, to make sound decisions, and to broaden your perspective of the world.

As part of the Berkeley College residential community, you will have roommates and floor mates who will become lifelong friends. Every day will teach you about yourself, who you are, who you want to be, and how you can get there.
