You simply won’t find a more vibrant, diverse, high-energy campus than Berkeley. Come experience it for yourself. We’d love to show you around.


Free 90-minute campus walking tours are held seven days a week, led by trained student guides. Reservations are required. To learn more, visit UC Berkeley Visitor Services, which also offers self-guided tours via mobile device or printable map.

Engineering tours are offered for prospective and admitted undergraduates and their families during the fall and spring semesters.  Led by current engineering students, the tour covers the college’s buildings and includes information on teaching and research, as well as student projects, services and groups. Space is limited and reservations are required. If you aren’t able to book a tour through visitor services, you can take a self-guided walking tour (PDF)  of the Berkeley Engineering quadrant.

Make sure to reserve your tour through Visitor Services.

Campus maps

Berkeley Engineering is spread across campus. See the map on this page for buildings located in the engineering quadrant. There’s also a map of the full UC Berkeley campus online.

Visitor resources

Need a convenient café right in the engineering quad? Looking for a place to stay, or to grab lunch?  Or maybe a nearby wireless hot spot? Find out what to see and where to go — both on and off campus — at the UC Berkeley Visitor Services website, or check out the Visit Berkeley gateway site.

The Navigating Berkeley web page from the campus Disability Access and Compliance office also offers maps and other resources for getting around the UC Berkeley campus.
