Berkeley Home Match

Learn, Live, and Thrive in Community

Our Goals

  • Connect graduate students and retirees for an affordable housing option

  • Support retirees planning to age in place

  • Build intergenerational relationships through interdependence

 What We Do

We connect UC retiree homeowners with a spare bedroom to UC Berkeley graduate students, Postdocs, and Visiting Scholars looking for affordable housing. Our education, resources, and support empower participants to find a living situation that works for them.
