Public Parking

Street parking in the neighborhood surrounding Boalt Hall is controlled by parking restrictions (e.g., two hour limits). If you park in the city of Berkeley, please check carefully for posted parking restrictions. Most parking meters now take change and credit / debit cards. This map and list of public parking lots located near Boalt Hall will help you if street parking is unavailable. All lots require a fee for parking.

Obtaining On-Campus Parking for Events  

UC Berkeley Special Event Parking can provide reserved parking signs and attendants for on-campus events (if sufficient notice is given). Pre-paid parking spaces or permits cost between $10 – $16 per permit, and a parking attendant is required for more than 30 vehicles. More details are here.

Parking in the Boalt Lot is extremely limited. It is recommended that you park your guests at the Underhill Structure, which is only three blocks away from Berkeley Law. You can obtain driving directions from this Google map of UC Berkeley parking lots and garages. Non-permit parking is not allowed in campus lots between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm from Monday to Friday, but paid parking is available outside of these times.
