Information about the market cost of a one-bedroom apartment in the areas surrounding campus where its students commonly reside can be found on the UC Berkeley Housing Resource page (see Off-Campus Housing> Typical Rent ranges).
Living Expenses are on the conservative side and assume careful budgeting as well as sharing living quarters with at least one other person. Please be aware that your expenses may be higher depending on your personal lifestyle. Amounts are based on a nine-month academic year. Students who will attend with their families should expect to augment any personal budget estimates by at least 35% for an accompanying spouse and 20% for each child. Beginning in August, case-by-case reviews of living and transportation expenses may result in additional eligibility for student loans.
Please contact the Haas Financial Aid Office for information on what qualifies as an adjustment and how to request an adjustment starting in the Fall.
