If you like classic, fin de cicle, or deco architecture the campus has it all. Very hilly, though, be prepared to hike. Make sure to hang around long enough to hear the campaniles.

All the university reviews scores Cal Berkeley at the top. With that said, lots of people apply, and only a small number actually get in. It is a lovely campus with a nice mix of old and new buildings, and a mature park setting. So...More

I visited the campus to get some idea for a leadership center. The campus is great and lively with students.

We walk around this beautiful campus and enjoyed seeing students studying. We suggest you take a tour. Find the hudden bears and the stream. Shop at the campus stores, or others in the vicinity.

Awesome. If you are considering UC Berkeley, definitely go to the pre-admission talk (located at Sproul Hall). For us it was worth the trip from LA. We were very appreciative of Elizabeth's presentation (talk, insight, information).

Hi I have a niece from Southeast Asia who will be visiting San Francisco in Feb 2016, how do we get to UC Berkeley from Union Square and is there a website we could request or view information regarding foreign student's application and admission requirement for an undergraduate business degree? She will be in 11th grade next year. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

You can take the Richmond line to Downtown Berkeley and from there the campus is a bus ride/10-15 minute walk north. Ryan L is correct that in order to be accepted into Haas you must apply separately upon being accepted to... More
