Description

Perennially ranked among the top universities in the country, the 1,365-acre, 465-building campus offer visitors as well as students museums, libraries, superb views from the Campanile, public lectures by Nobel laureates, world class entertainment and NCAA sports. Campus life centers on Sproul Plaza and Sather Gate. A reminder of Berkeley's place in American social history can be found in the form of a plaque in front of Sproul Hall, marking the spot where Mario Savio launched the Free Speech movement in 1964. Free tours of campus are given Monday-Friday, leaving from 101 University Hall at the corner of University Avenue and Oxford Street. For one day in April, the university holds its annual open house, Cal Day. April is also the month that the campus hosts a number of events for Earth Week. The visitor center is located at 101 Sproul Hall near Bancroft way and Telegraph avenue.  Free tours are available, but reservations are required.
