Prospective Info

Cloyne welcomes visitors! You may be a prospective co-op member checking us out, a guest looking for a meal or a place to lay your head, a Cloyne alum, or someone attending one of our events that we open to the wider community. Whatever you’re coming for, we welcome you!

Contact Us

If you don’t know someone in the house who can host you, or you just have a quick question that can be answered over the phone or via email, here are a few managers you can reach out to. These managers can have you over for dinner and give you a tour, or they can direct you to someone with the capacity to do so. Note that a manager can also forward a message from you to the house for bigger asks, e.g., if you’re looking for a volunteer member to host a group of people for a few nights.

Surroundings

Cloyne is close to so many other co-ops, including the houses of CZ, Ridge, Euclid, Hoyt, Stebbins, Kingman, and Kidd, as well as Northside Co-op Apartments. Several of these co-ops throw parties and invite the wider co-op community, and a lot of co-opers also form connections across houses and visit each other frequently.

One block west of Cloyne on Euclid Avenue is a group of small businesses. There you can find a host of restaurants, a frozen yogurt shop, several cafes, a boba place, convenience stores, hair salons, a print shop, and even a bar (you don’t need an ID to get in).

The Downtown Berkeley BART station is a 20-minute walk away and can also be reached via bus (AC Transit’s 52 or F lines, or Cal’s Perimeter line). For those new to Berkeley, BART is a rapid transit public transportation system that can take you to San Francisco, Oakland, and other Bay Area locations.

Although we have our own small gym, sometimes you need extra equipment. The next closest gym is Memorial Stadium Fitness Center, a small gym that offers different weight machines, benches, mats, and cardio machines.

Cloyne is right next to several UC Berkeley buildings. We are neighbored by the Goldman School of Public Policy, Soda Hall, the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation, and a parking structure/athletic field.
