Parking & Transportation
Berkeley Law-Specific Parking
Berkeley Law offers special parking permits for those rare but special work-related circumstances when an employee needs parking pass for the day, or for a short period of time to load or unload materials. Guest passes are also available for bona fide guests of the university.
Many university parking lots, including the one behind Boalt Hall, have attendant parking to accommodate the high demand. When all marked spaces are full, the attendant will direct you to park in an unmarked space. Please do not park your vehicle in an unmarked space unless an attendant directs you to do so. After parking your vehicle, bring your key to the attendant. You will be given a claim ticket in exchange for your key, and the matching stub will be placed underneath your windshield wiper.
To claim your vehicle before 6 p.m., return to your lot and give your key claim ticket to the attendant. After 6 p.m., go to the UC Police Department in the basement of Sproul Hall.

Parking Permits and Prices
Campus parking permits do not guarantee a parking space, but they do allow permitholders access to park in the designated campus parking lots. You will also receive an annual Bear Transit Pass (good for campus shuttles) upon request when you purchase your parking permit.

New Directions Program (Alternative Transportation Travel Discounts)
The New Directions program promotes the use of alternative transportation by offering carpool parking discounts, emergency rides home, and discount transit tickets for faculty and staff.
UC Berkeley has a variety of car sharing services on, or just adjacent to campus. This service allows access to occasional use of a car without the expense or waste of owning one.
In order to accommodate those rare but special work-related circumstances when an employee needs a parking pass for the day, or for a short period of time to load or unload materials, please contact the Dean's Office at (510) 642-9919.
Guest Parking Passes
Guest parking passes are available for bona fide guests of the University. Please contact the Dean's Office at (510) 642-9919 for more information.
The circumstances described above are exceptional in nature. UC Policy states that campus funds cannot be used to purchase parking permits for private, individual use. Employees are expected to pay for their own parking. If an individual forgets his or her permit on a given day, a day pass can be obtained (with proper identification) at either the East Gate or West Gate kiosks.
