So, I'm on the summer housing waitlist. What do I do?

<p>I'm enrolled in two classes for this Summer (starting on the 20th), and I am on the housing waitlist. I'm not sure what to do. I live in Sacramento, so I would really not like to have to commute (2+ hours each way). Generally, does anybody know if being on the waitlist means that I won't get housing? To be honest, I'm a tad worried. Any advice?</p>

<p>I thought that as a transfer edge student, I was guaranteed housing. I suppose I was wrong?</p>

<p>E-mail Berkeley housing and ask what your position on the waitlist is. I was number 23 and I got a room 1.5 weeks later! So there's definitely hope for you! Granted, I was placed on the waitlist at the beginning of May.</p>

<p>I've never been in summer housing so I can't really speak on that...however, have you looked into getting an apartment for the summer? And a lot of students would probably let you sublet their place for a shorter period of 1-2 months. The price, depending on the place, will definitely be cheaper than/comparable to summer housing. A basic craigslist search in sf bay-->east bay-->berkeley should yield some good results--though you'll need to hurry if you want to get a place for the summer. Just look into as backup. Hope your summing housing goes through though!</p>

<p>Yeah summer subleting seems to be REALLY cheap and people would probably negotiate since they want to get rid of it. </p>

<p>But if you're a freshman, I would recommend staying in dorms because they have a great social life in the summer time.</p>

<p>You can live in a frat or co-op.</p>
