Parking is available in the faculty-staff fee lot by Etcheverry Hall; you can enter from Ridge Rd. or La Loma. Other large lots are on upper Hearst Avenue just beyond the foothill dormitory and on lower Hearst Avenue, between Euclid and Arch Street. You need a parking permit to park in any campus lot during weekday business hours. At night or during the weekend it is possible to park without a permit, but you still have to pay. However, the campus and the community both discourage the use of private cars for travel to and from campus. Use of alternative transportation is highly encouraged.
Public parking provided by the City of Berkeley is located at 2025 Center Street between Shattuck and Milvia Street. To get to Cory and Soda Halls from the garage, walk to the UC shuttle stop at the north-east corner of Center and Shattuck, and take the blue-and-white shuttle to the stop at the corner of Hearst and Gayley. Etcheverry Hall is the light brown building located across the street to your left.
Cost: $.75 - $2 per hour.
A campus garage for visitors is located on Bancroft Avenue just below the intersection of Telegraph Avenue. The garage charges by the hour and it is best to arrive by 9 a.m. to insure a place. Enter the garage by the driveway on the right hand side as you go down Bancroft Way towards Oxford Avenue. The garage is located directly below the ASUC Student Center.
Cost: $1.50 per hour
It takes about 15 minutes to walk from the ASUC to Etcheverry Hall. See the campus map (http://www.berkeley.edu/map/index.html) for directions.
