Things to Do near UC Berkeley

UC Berkeley is one of the world's most prestigious universities, with nearly 100 Nobel Prize winners either having studied or worked here. 

A Progressive, Prestigious Institution

The Sather Tower, also called the Campanile, is a beautiful landmark of both the university and of Berkeley itself. When you stay at the Berkeley City Club, you'll be just steps from the gorgeous historic campus.

As the most prestigious public university in the United States, UC Berkeley is known as much for its academic excellence as it is for its progressive politics, a legacy of its role at the forefront of the counterculture protests of the 1960’s.
