Directions & parking

 

Begin your campus experience at the Visitor Center.

You’ll find us at the new Koret Visitor Center at 2227 Piedmont Avenue, in historic California Memorial Stadium.

Parking. Street parking may be difficult to find and is limited to two hours. We recommend using public transportation when possible. The Stadium Parking Garage at 2175 Piedmont Avenue is adjacent to Memorial Stadium. When exiting the garage, you’ll see a bear statue and the Haas Grand Staircase. You’ll find us up the stairs and to the right!
