The MSRI parking lot consists of the top two levels of the hill terrace parking. The lot is on the hill below the MSRI building off Centennial Drive. MSRI has a limited number of parking slots for members, staff, workshop participants and special events attendees. Due to the limited number of spaces, these parking spots tend to fill up quickly. Additional parking is available in the lower levels, for a fee. The UCB Police department patrols all of the lots and will ticket vehicles that are parked off the pavement or that do not have a visible permit. During workshops or special events, temporary parking permits to be displayed under the windshield are available for attendees in a box on the first stair landing towards MSRI.
There are three parking spaces directly in front of Chern Hall for anyone with a Disabled Person Parking Placard.
The parking spaces at the top of the driveway at MSRI are reserved for staff members and service providers. Please do not double park next to these spaces or along the cement wall.
