My friend lives at MacArthur and Telegraph in Oakland. It's two BART stops away from downtown Berkeley, right next to the campus. It's not dressed up like Temescal to the north, but it's also not a dangerous area. Additionally, it is within walking distance from Piedmont Avenue, which is nice.

If you're going to U.C. Berkeley (or any other college, I think), you could always check into the co-ops. My daughter is in one of them, and she really likes it. Here is the website:

USCA : University Students' Cooperative Association

You start out sharing a room with one or two roommates, but as you gain points each semester, you could end up in a room of your own in no time.
