Things to consider:

  • You can decide if you want to live in a house or an apartment. However, BSC will select your room. You cannot choose your own roommate or flat mates.
  • Because it is a co-op, you will have to contribute 2-3 hours of housework per week.
  • All accommodation payment is processed directly with the BSC.
  • Advisors through the BSC will guide you through the registration and move-in process. They will also be your main point of contact should you have any issues or concerns during your stay.
  • You will have purchase your own bedding. A bed and desk will be provided. There are stories nearby where bedding and other personal items can be purchased.
  • You will be paying for a 6-week term. This means, you can choose to stay before or after the dates of the Global Leadership & Social Innovation Program. You do not have to be enrolled in a program during this time. If you’d like to extend your stay in Berkeley and San Francisco, you are free to do so.
