Planning Your Visit


If you are able to conduct interviews on campus, we will send you driving directions, a parking pass, and logistical information a few days prior to your interview date. On the day of the interviews, we suggest that you arrive 15 minutes before your first interview to park, acclimate yourself, and prepare for the day.

Traveling to the San Francisco Bay Area

Travelers to the San Francisco Bay Area may fly into either Oakland or San Francisco. The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is located on the peninsula south of the city, across the bay from Berkeley. The Oakland International Airport (OAK) is smaller and closer to Berkeley. You may take public transportation from both airports. For airport shuttles from both airports, you generally need to call 24 hours in advance and again upon your arrival at the airport.

If driving to campus, please alert the MFE office so that we can send you a parking permit and a map of parking lots. Parking is limited on the Berkeley campus and parking regulations are strictly enforced.
