Urgh, so.... I'm in a bit of a bind and purchased nonrefundable tickets from Alaska Air. I have two tickets worth $440 dollars. The trip I was planning is no longer happening, so... What I'm wondering is, if any of you are planning to use Alaska Air or Horizon Air, and would like $100 chopped off a $440 trip, please contact me using this email: arielhud@yahoo . com (without the space) 

:-( I have until December 2009 to use them, but I'd rather sell them. Thanks! (also, if you know where the appropriate place on Craig's list to post this would be, that would be super helpful)

j-term housing

I'm looking for an internship in the San Fran area (I'll know if I got it by Tuesday) so just to cover my bases incase I do get it, I'm looking for housing, but only for the month of January. I'm a student, aged 20, so I can't afford anything more than $300 (maybe less) but I'm looking to be in an area close to public transportation so I can get around. From what I understand, Berkeley is pretty close to San Fran, which is awesome, and the school I'm looking at is in Berkeley so everything would work out.

If you know anyone, or can help me yourself, please feel free to message me via LJ and we can talk that way!!

i'm wondering if anybody could tell me a bit about the prospect + dwight area. (what's it around, is the area known for anything in specific, crime, how far from berkeley bowl, etc.)

i'm transferring to cal and will probably end up living in a house there. i may not be able to visit before i agree to live there, so any input would be nice.

Summer Sublet, 1 Block from Campus, Mid-May to Mid-August
Females only, please!

My roommates and I are looking for a girl to split a room with one of us in our fully furnished 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment for the summer. Rent is $600/month, including all utilities and wireless internet, plus $10/month for satellite tv. It's on Allston Way in between Shattuck and Oxford--a block away from campus, BART, and most major bus lines. Check out the apartment's website for pictures and more information: Allston Place.

You'd be living with 3 other girls (juniors in MCB, Legal Studies, and Art History). All 3 of us are working and taking classes over the summer so we'll be pretty busy, but generally we are laid back and easy to get along with. We are prone to late night gelato sprees, midnight baking bouts, and watching hours-long Bollywood movies, among other things. Just so you know.
1:10 pm
The room is part of a 3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment, big living room with TV, amazing plush red couch, nice kitchen and eating area, panoramic living room window, and a DECK with the view of SF bay bridge on a clear night. The apartment is on the third floor.

There will be just one roomate living there in the summer. The room is available all of summer, between end of may to about mid august. The rent would be for the months of june and july only (you get the last week of may and the first three weeks of august for free).

The room is a double. It comes with beds (one queen, one twin), desks, dressers, and closets.

If you have a roomate you want to live with, great. If not, we can find someone for you.
The room is$560 a month per person for two people, or $1120 a month for one person per month. We would essentially be giving you a month free because you could move in at the end of finals and move out right before welcome week, only paying rent for June and July.

Garage (Not Gated) Parking Space available

(Private) Parking Space $80 per month. I can rent it out  to somone for the whole year. or if you are interested in only summer, then that's fine too. The 80 dollar fee is the flat fee and you can have the parking space all day and night, so if you are looking for a day space, this is not for you, unless you dont mind paying this non-negotiable price.

It's in an apartment a garage, not gated,  near the intersection of La Loma and Ridge Rd.
(Exactly behind the Foothill La Loma dorms) 
It's on North-Side, so relatively secure.
Complete shade, fits large cars, easy and short walk to campus, very close to Cory, and engineering buildings, also a short 8 min walk to Tolman, if you happen to have classes there.

If interested, my listing is on facebook marketplace or leave a message

Looking for a room
Hey there, I'm a female UCB Undergrad (sophomore) who is looking for anyone with an apartment/house/boarding house with a spare room they need filled for the academic year. I've been looking mainly on craigslist, but I thought this was worth a shot. I'd prefer within walking distance of campus, but for me walking distance is pretty flexible. I'm very flexible on what rent I'll pay, it really depends on the place.

So if you have a place like that or can think of any friends with a place like that, please let me know as I'm getting a bit nervous. (If you know of any good available one bedrooms, let me know too). I'm not in Berkeley atm, but I'll be going up there in two weeks to check things out.

Thank you!

Anyone willing to sell their furniture?
Hey Everyone,

I've been craigslisting but I thought this was worth a shot:

I'm looking to buy a full/twin mattress + bed frame willing to pay $125 max and a desk and I'm willing to pay $50 max for that. The only thing I ask if I may look at it on Sunday before I decide to purchase it on the spot. Willing to pick it up around Berkeley/Oakland/Albany areas.

I'm desperate! (well, not that much) but I do need a bed to sleep on by Sunday!

Please reply if interested!

We are three female UC Berkeley students looking for someone to share our newly renovated apartment with us. Our future housemate will have their own room! :)

We are looking for someone preferably (but not necessarily) female, who is a non-smoker (one of us is extremely allergic to tobacco), and is very laid back. We like to hang out, are a little silly, but nonetheless are very serious students. We do not plan on having big parties at our place, but we may have a few small quiet ones.

The room will be available in June.

Please send us an e-mail at HRussell@berkeley.edu telling us about yourself! Thanks! We are excited to meet you!

Looking for a place to live...
I was just admitted as a transfer student last week, and since then I have been hell-bent on finding a decent place to live in the fall. I'm a female looking for a single room in a house or apt. with other females...I'm looking for a mellow, quiet place, nothing crazy or too loud. Available parking is a plus. Something on the South side would be awesome, and I'm looking to pay no more than $750 for everything. I can move in anytime in August.
