Cal on of off campus housing?

<p>hey guys im trying to decide between on or off campus housing for my first year as a transfer at Cal...</p>

<p>what are the pros and cons? for me, off campus would be cheaper but I dont wanna 'miss out' on the experience of on campus housing? </p>

<p>would I be truly missing out on an experience if I live off campus, about 7 blocks away?</p>

<p>Non-transfer juniors at Berkeley basically can't get on-campus housing, so don't worry you'd be missing out on anything if you didn't.</p>
