UC Berkeley Campus Shuttles and Public Transit Routes
From the San Francisco Airport / Oakland Airport
Construction Notification: From November 2022 through June 2024, access to MSRI/SLMath via Centennial Drive will be partially limited to one-lane traffic during the UC Berkeley Centennial Bridge project construction. High level information about the schedule may be found on the project website, and SLMath will alert visitors to specific dates of access interruptions as they are scheduled. Cars, shuttles, and bicycles will still be able to use this road throughout this time period, but some traffic delays may occur. The location of construction is between the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden and the Lawrence Hall of Science.
Driving DirectionsFrom South, North, West (San Francisco): Get to the 80 (East or West), exit on University Avenue and drive away from the Bay. Follow University Avenue to its end. Turn left onto Oxford street, then right onto Hearst Avenue. At the second light, turn right onto Gayley Road (on the UCB campus). Take the first left onto Stadium Rim Way, and the first left onto Centennial Drive (which goes away from the Memorial Stadium). Signs now indicate the direction of MSRI. Centennial Drive goes up up up, past the UC Botanical Garden, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs, and the Lawrence Hall of Science. Past the Lawrence Hall of Science, the road curves sharply right and up. MSRI's parking spaces are in the uppermost 2 rows of the parking lots after this curve. (Parking information)
