Many students who come to Berkeley quickly realize that finding affordable housing at a reasonable distance from the classroom can be an undertaking in itself. Residents of Tellefsen Hall enjoy TH’s close proximity to campus — just two blocks from the latter’s north side. The North Side neighborhood is known for its safety and relative tranquility, and is home to various shops and restaurants, including two hair salons, a coffee house, Mexican, Italian, Korean, Thai, Japanese, and American restaurants, several small grocery stores, a stationary/copy business, and a florist.
TH itself sits on a peaceful, forested lot through which Strawberry Creek meanders on its journey to campus. Members can enjoy a game of basketball on the court, toast marshmallows in the outdoor fireplace, or picnic on the deck in the spring.
