Family Housing for UC Berkeley  


Smyth Fernwald



We welcome you to our richly diverse Family Living community, which represents over 65 countries and 27 languages. We encourage you to make use of the wide range of social, cultural, and educational resources we offer, and hope to hear your ideas about what you wish to participate in while living here.

At Smyth Fernwald, a ten to fifteen minute walk from campus, we enjoy panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. We have a community center, a community garden, and a small park and several playground areas for children. Our residents have access to a weight room, library, computer center, and other recreational facilities at the nearby Clark Kerr campus. The small size of our community makes it possible to get to know virtually everyone, and we benefit from the many amenities of being so close to campus while still enjoying the tranquility of a "woodsy" residential neighborhood.
