Bridge Program

Congratulations on your acceptance to Cal! We invite all Summer Bridge students to live on campus, where you can make the most of Berkeley’s world-class education and campus experience. Our residence halls provide many opportunities for you to create lifelong friendships, build leadership skills, work, play, and get academic support to keep you on the road to graduation and success. On top of all that, it’s safe, easy, and convenient to live on campus.

Summer Bridge students live together in a shared residential complex just one block from campus in our newest location, Blackwell Hall! Professional and student staff live on-site and provide enriching programs and activities to facilitate a sense of community among Bridge students.

Summer Bridge students are eligible for priority housing if they apply before the priority housing deadline. In order to be considered for priority housing, students must complete the online summer housing application.

COVID-19 Policies: If you live in campus housing during the summer, you will be required to adhere to public health policies designed to reduce transmission of COVID-19. All UC Berkeley students who have on-campus housing will be provided with a free COVID-19 at-home rapid test kit during check-in. For testing instructions, please go to Summer 2022 COVID Testing Requirement.
