Being Considerate While Living Off Campus

UC Berkeley students are an important part of what makes Berkeley, well, Berkeley. It’s important for students to embrace the City of Berkeley and the broader community they join. That means enjoying everything the city offers, from the coffee and boba tea shops along Telegraph Avenue to the unique restaurants and boutiques Downtown to the vibrant cultural and art scenes across the city. It also means being a good neighbor. Below are some tips on how students like you can be good neighbors.
