Overall, UC Berkeley is a great place. However, there are some downsides to attending UC Berkeley. The housing situation is bad. Dorms and apartments are expensive and are hard to get. Another problem is the safety of the surrounding area. There are a lot of homeless people around the campus. Sometimes strangers come to the campus.
