University of California Berkeley
- Average rating
Uphill from the UC campus, Northside provides great views and a quiet environment for students who want calm, pleasant days at Cal.
Northside offers a soothing contrast to Southside’s hustle-and-bustle, with views of Sather Tower and the San Francisco Bay at almost every intersection. Enjoy a quick downhill walk to campus, calm days, and quiet. You’ll find yourself close to the vibrant student co-ops, and numerous restaurants and shops on Euclid Ave. Many food options await just a bit further downhill in the Gourmet Ghetto district.
You'll fall in love with:
Hummingbird Cafe - Enjoy a healthy breakfast, fresh fruit smoothies, and the customer service that will leave you with a smile.
