Looking for the perfect off-campus student apartment in Berkeley? With hundreds to choose from it is hard to spot exactly what you need. There are a lot of things to consider when signing a lease, but these four amenities are a must for your off-campus apartment.

  1. Security and Secure package access: While looking for off-campus apartments your safety should be the number one priority. Apartments with security systems, cameras, gates, and call boxes maximize safety. Apart from keeping yourself safe, apartments with mailrooms and package centers ensure your items are safe too. 
  2. In-House Washer and Dryer: Finding a student apartment with an in-house washer and dryer is like hitting the jackpot. Lugging your laundry to a laundromat can be tedious, expensive, and time-consuming, especially in Berkeley. Apartments with in-house washer and dryer units help free up more of your time for the things you actually want to do! 
  3. Fitness Center: Staying fit as a college student can be very challenging. Everyone’s heard of the freshman 15 right? If it’s not convenient, you are just adding roadblocks in the way of healthy habits, and it can be tedious to commute to the RSF (UC Berkeley Student Gym). Having an in-house fitness center allows you to work out when you want to without the added burden of travel time.
  4. High-Speed Wi-Fi: Laggy Wi-Fi can sometimes mean the difference between getting an assignment in on time and missing a critical deadline. Finding an apartment with high-speed Wi-Fi availability can save you a lot of time and unnecessary stress!
