Come Meet Us!

Our visits are specifically tailored to provide you an overview of our admission application process, meetings with current students (Berkeley Optometry Ambassadors), and an opportunity to shadow in a pre-clinic during an actual class!

Meet with Students

We encourage all prospective students to reach out to our ambassadors to inquire about our program and student life. Berkeley Optometry Student Ambassadors work in conjunction with the Admissions & Student Affairs Office to provide prospective students with “real life” information regarding what it’s like to be an Optometry student here at UC Berkeley.

Campus Map

A great landmark to find the school is the California Memorial Stadium — we are west of the stadium by one block and adjacent to the Haas School of Business.

Parking

The campus has several pay lots. The closest parking lot, where we recommend visitors park, is the Maxwell Field Stadium Garage, across the street from the Haas School of Business/next door to California Memorial Stadium. Parking in Berkeley can be a challenge, so please allow yourself plenty of extra time. More information can be found here.

Campus Tours

On your visit, we will only have time to tour the Herbert Wertheim School of Optometry and Vision Science facilities.  If you are interested in a comprehensive campus tour of UC Berkeley, please contact Visitor Services.
