Our living/learning community helps move students from survive to thrive.

Residential and Student Service Programs is the front door for Berkeley’s residential students. We are tremendously privileged to provide a quality and positive transition experience for the ninety percent of first-year students who live on campus. 

We do this by providing a welcoming environment that promotes a strong sense of belonging, supportive academic programs, and a comfortable and safe community experience. Collectively, these features help to ensure a high level of retention among our students. As an auxiliary operation, we also contribute substantially to other supportive student programs across Student Affairs and campus that engage students on a path of life-long connection to Berkeley.

Our living/learning community helps students make the most out of UC Berkeley’s world-class education and campus experience.
