Parking & Transportation
Dear Permit Holder,
Some quick updates for campus parking.
We have noticed more vehicles in our parking lots and we are slowly bringing back some parking controls. If you must be on campus during the rest of May, please make sure to park in a regular marked parking space. Please do not park in any special reserved spaces.

Dear faculty and staff,

We are writing today to share news about budget-related implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we have shared previously, the loss in current and projected revenues to the campus is significant; combined with actual and projected increased expenses, the total impact will likely be in the range of $210-300 million.

Chancellor's Office

Dear faculty and staff, 

Since spring commencement would have occurred this Saturday, May 16, we did not want the moment to pass without offering you the chance to tell the UC Berkeley Class of 2020 how proud of them you are. Participating is simple. 

  1. Wear blue and gold. 

  2. Take a selfie or shoot a short video stating your affiliation to Berkeley and congratulating the Class of 2020 on their extraordinary accomplishments.
