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. A taxi to Berkeley costs around $30 from Oakland versus $45-50 from San Francisco. For airport shuttles from both airports, you generally need to call 24 hours in advance and again upon your arrival at the airport.
