Parking is usually difficult to find near curtain time. Please plan to arrive in Berkeley 30-40 minutes prior to an event to ensure that you are in your seat before the curtain rises.
And occasionally, two or more events occur on the same day or evening on the UCB campus which can make finding a parking space even more challenging. Please see Parking Alerts on the next tab or the specific event page for updates on known possible parking conflicts.

Parking AlertsThe following are dates and times that we are currently aware of when parking may be especially scarce on the UC Berkeley campus due to conflicting sporting or other events (13/14 Men's and Women's Basketball schedule is yet announced, please check back in September 2013 for updates). Allow plenty of extra time to find parking or take public transit! Most University parking lots will be reserved for game patrons and city-owned lots may have a limited number of spots available. Traffic will be heavy. Please be aware of the parking shortage on these days:
Again, most University parking lots will be reserved for game patrons and city-owned lots may have a limited number of spots available. If you have tickets to an event at these times, we advise you to arrive early and to seriously consider alternative transportation. The Downtown Berkeley BART station is a 10-minute walk to the Zellerbach Hall, and many AC Transit buses stop on Bancroft, right in front of the Hall. Visit BART's website in advance to schedule your trip online at www.bart.gov.
