Berg House is a college-owned house located at 112 Union St. (the corner of Union St. and 2nd St.), on the same block as Dacie Moses House. It is an interest house that houses 8 students. Since the 1998-1999 school year, it has been the home of WA House, an institutional house.
Berg House is a mostly brick building and has been described as a box that sits on top of another box. The top floor is one large room, a triple. The main floor has the remainder of the student rooms (a double and three singles), and a bathroom. Interestingly, all of the common rooms are in the basement, which includes a large lounge, the kitchen, study rooms, a larger bathroom, and the laundry machines.

Cable TV was first installed in Berg in 1995. This was, at the time, the only student housing to have cable (and the only cable TV on campus other than the lounge in Sayles-Hill), which was somewhat contraversial at the time. Because the SFA was charged with recording and archiving science fiction shows, Sci-Fi house was allowed this unique luxury. Since then, cable has become much more common in campus housing.
