Neighborhood Guide

People choose neighborhoods for a number of reasons including cost, proximity to campus, lifestyle, or needs of a significant other or children. Our students live all over the Bay Area. Many prefer the convenience of living in Berkeley or nearby communities, such as Albany, El Cerrito, or the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland. For those who enjoy urban living, San Francisco is an option across the Bay. Some live as far away as Silicon Valley to the south (over 60 minutes driving each way), to Napa Valley in the north, and Walnut Creek to the east.  

Here is a neighborhood map and descriptions of the neighborhoods closest to Berkeley Law.
