Limited housing at PSR is available during the Earl Lectures. Contact PSR Housing Director, Marge Boyd, with inquiries: 510/849-8255 or housing@psr.edu.

Rooms may be available in Easton or Gibbs Hall at Church Divinity School of the Pacific, across the street from PSR. These rooms are on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact 510/204-0732 or eastonhall@cdsp.edu. If you are a prospective student, ask for the prospective student rate at Gibbs Hall.

To locate hotels and other lodging off campus, please consult the official Visit Berkeley website. Craigslist can be a helpful resource in finding a brief sublet or longer term housing.


Upon request we will provide a list of licensed childcare providers in the area that may be available to provide drop-in care.  Email earllectures@psr.edu.

Bananas (510/658-0381) is a local childcare referral organization that can connect parents with local babysitters.

Transit & Parking

We encourage conferees to use public transportation if possible. 

By Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART):

Take BART to the downtown Berkeley station (not the North Berkeley station). It's a 15-minute walk uphill to the PSR campus. On foot, proceed north on Shattuck Ave. from the station; turn right onto University Ave.; turn left onto Oxford Ave., right onto Hearst Ave.; then make an oblique left onto LeConte Ave. and walk uphill to the top of the bluff. The PSR campus is on your left.

By AC Transit bus:

From the downtown Berkeley BART station, cross Shattuck Ave. to the bus stop at the corner of Shattuck and Center St. Take the #65 bus to the first bus stop on Euclid Ave. Walk one block west (towards the bay) along Le Conte Ave. to the PSR campus.


The PSR Parking Lot is located on Scenic Avenue between Virginia and Le Conte.  Covered parking (drive through the outdoor parking lot, then turn left under Mudd Hall) is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  $6 per day.
