Edge Programs

Congratulations on your acceptance to Cal! Now is the time to apply for your summer housing! Freshmen, Transfer, and Global Edge students will all reside together in a shared residential complex just one block from campus in our newest location, Blackwell Hall. Our residence halls provide many opportunities for you to create lifelong friendships, build leadership skills, work, play, and get academic support to keep you on the road to graduation and success. On top of all that, it’s safe, easy, and convenient to live on campus. Professional and student staff also live on-site and provide enriching programs and activities to facilitate a sense of community among all students.

Freshmen, Transfer, and Global Edge students are eligible for priority housing if they apply before the priority housing deadline. In order to be considered for priority housing, students must complete the online summer housing application.

COVID-19 Policies: If you live in campus housing during the summer, you will be required to adhere to public health policies designed to reduce transmission of COVID-19. All UC Berkeley students who have on-campus housing will be provided with a free COVID-19 at-home rapid test kit during check-in. For testing instructions, please go to Summer 2022 COVID Testing Requirement.
