The Berkeley Student Cooperative is a 501c3 nonprofit housing cooperative that provides affordable housing in room and board houses and apartments to students at UC Berkeley and other Bay Area colleges and universities.
Presently the BSC has over 1300 student members living in or eating at twenty student housing cooperatives around the UC Berkeley campus. Each house is democratically run, and we all contribute our labor to help keep our housing costs affordable.
Founded in 1933, the BSC is the largest student housing cooperative in the United States. We are a member of the North American Students of Cooperation (NASCO), an association of housing, food, and worker cooperatives in the US and Canada.
