Campus Reopening Notice

Starting June 16th, vaccinated EECS faculty, staff, and students can voluntarily return to their offices, labs and other research spaces in Cory and Soda Halls if they follow the procedures outlined in the EECS Safety Manual.  Building restrictions for non-affiliated collaborators, event attendees, and visitors will continue but be loosened over time. Cory and Soda Halls will open during the first week in August.  We are not hosting events or activities until we receive more clarity about regulatory requirements and are able to resume full operations. Most employees will return to campus on July 12th, and in-person instruction will resume for the Fall semester on August 25th, unless otherwise specified by campus. Please continue to check the University Coronavirus Updates and Resources for latest information.

The EECS department is located in the northeast quadrant of the Berkeley campus, at the intersection of Hearst and LeRoy Avenues. The EE Division and EECS Department offices are in Cory Hall. The CS Division is based across the street in Soda Hall. Some of our faculty and researchers are also in Sutardja Dai Hall, next to Cory.

Take Public Transportation

A trip planner for public transportation information can be found at AC Transit and Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) are the two  providers.

Take the Shuttle

There is also a weekday campus shuttle (Perimeter or Central Campus; $1 for non-affiliates) that leaves from the east side of Shattuck Ave. north of Center St., just across from the downtown Berkeley BART station.

Enjoy a Walk

Alternatively, it is a 10-minute walk up through our beautiful campus from downtown Berkeley. Head towards the Campanile, as shown on the UCB Visitor Center map, and then left toward the Hearst Mining Circle. Steps to the left of the Hearst Memorial Mining Building lead up to the courtyard between Sutardja Dai and Cory Halls. Continue up those steps to Hearst Avenue, and Soda Hall will be on your left at the next intersection (LeRoy).

Drive to Campus

Driving Directions to campus As you come up Hearst Avenue to LeRoy, Soda Hall is to the left before LeRoy, Cory Hall is to the right after LeRoy, and Hearst Mining (HMMB) is behind Cory Hall. If you are coming from Gayley Road, Cory Hall is immediately on the left when you turn onto Hearst Avenue, and Soda Hall is on the right at the first intersection. The campus provides some general information on visitor parking. There is little public parking in the area, though sometimes short-term residential parking is available. If you are visiting for a specific meeting, your host may be able to arrange a parking permit.  There are a few public parking spaces on the second floor of the lower Hearst parking lot, opening from Scenic Avenue.  If you arrive later in the day, these are likely to be filled.

Invitation to Prospective Students and Families

Visit Us!

At the northeast corner of the campus you will find Cory and Soda Halls, homes of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, with campus dormitories right across the street.

Here are some ideas on visiting our department:
