UC Berkeley Campus Tours

Free guided campus walking tours are offered seven days a week. See public tour website for online tour reservations (required) and current information.  Group tour reservations are required for groups of 10 or more; see group tour website for details and reservations.

We offer free 90-minute walking tours of the campus seven days a week, rain or shine. Applying to Berkeley? Tourist? Nostalgic alum? A campus tour is perfect for you! Our expert tour guides are student ambassadors who cover academics, history of the University, health & safety, athletics, student life, and much more. The tour outlines our residence halls and dining options, but does not include viewing a residence hall. Please visit the Cal Housing website for information. These walking tours are for individuals, families, and parties of up to 5 people.

If you are a school group, organization, a bigger group, any size group requesting a Spanish or Mandarin language tour, or you’re interested in a private walking tour or golf cart tour for a fee, please visit the Special Group and Private Walking Tours page or Golf Cart Tours page for more information. 

We cannot accommodate groups on our free guided walking tour and any groups registering under different names in parties of 5 will be turned away. Tours start at the Koret Visitor Center at 2227 Piedmont Avenue in the historic California Memorial Stadium, except on home football game weekends when the tours on both Saturday and Sunday will start at the Campanile, the tall clock tower in the middle of campus. Tours end near Sproul Plaza, an approximately 10 minute walk from the Visitor Center.
