Student Housing

We are currently at our maximum capacity for Spring 2016, but we encourage you to apply now for future semesters. If you have a contract with another BSC house and wish to transfer into Cloyne, you may trade places with a contract holding member from Cloyne. The two members would then visit Central Office to make the switch official.


Cloyne Court is one of the many units owned and operated by the Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC for short). The BSC is a nonprofit cooperative providing affordable housing in houses and apartments to UC Berkeley, community college, and other full-time college students who meet certain eligibility requirements. The co-ops are an ideal place to meet new people and participate in a welcoming community. We offer housing in 20 properties near the UC Berkeley campus.

Cloyne offers students a healthy, affordable, enjoyable and fulfilling living experience. Below, you can see for yourself how Cloyne and our other coops compare to other Berkeley housing options.

Rent Comparison

The BSC offers priority to students with disabilities, international students studying abroad at UC Berkeley, and participating students in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP).

Eligibility Requirements (Cloyne specific):

  •     Fall/Spring: Registered U.C. Berkeley students, including Freshman Extension
  •     Summer: You will be taking classes at UC Berkeley summer session

Substance Free Policy (introduced Fall 2014)

Fall 2014 marked the year that Cloyne became the official Substance Free Academic Theme House in the BSC. Cloyne residents choose and promise to abide by our Substance Free policy, which prohibits the storage and consumption of intoxicants on the property.
