The staff suck. My roommate lived there a semester more than myself, and she said "in i-house style i didn't get the room i wanted" because they place people where ever without care.
The food makes me want to go on an au natural diet.
And the rooms are smaller than my bathroom at home.
The only way I-house gets residents is because of how competitive housing is in berkeley.

Okay..on the upside everyone who lives there is beautiful, in every sense of the word, and it's a good way to mix with international students...especially the beautiful international students! but the rules in the dining commons STINK. when you want to use up your swipes, you can't by bringing in lots of guests because you have a 2 guest limit PER DAY. And the dining commons is only open like 5 hours a day, so it's hard to time when you want to eat to when the place is open. it's definitely not student friendly since hardworking students want to eat at 10pm, not 5pm to 8pm!

This place is a great location to live if you're not sure what you want to do in Berkeley and want to get to know a lot more new people. Prices are a little high, but I guess worth it for those who really want the experience and I say go for it and have a good time!

While I found the international house, located on the top of Bancroft street south of the university of california at berkeley's campus to excel in the 3 most important properties of a housing unit--that is, location, location, location, I have always found it troubling that there were cases of sexual assault that occurred in its bathrooms a couple years ago by people allowed in by the lax security of the place. A nice coffeeshop though, I suppose it is indeed.

The international house at UC Berkeley has a decent sized coffee shop attached that is open to the public. The outside area has splendid views over Berkeley (and over the bay when it is not foggy) and inside there is plenty of space for studying and wireless access (given you have airbears). Besides coffee they also serve decent tab beer (sierra nevada) for $3.75/pint and $11/pitcher and a variety of wines.

This is a popular hang-out for many international students of UC Berkeley. Another cool thing ... they are at least open until midnight.

PROS: they also serve beer and wine
CONS: expensive refills (original coffee price minus 50 cents)
