Transportation to and from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Visitors to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory must be granted a gate pass to access the laboratory. You should have received an electronic gate pass via email. If you have not yet received this pass, please contact Lilian DePorcel immediately at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

  • For those staying at the Doubletree Hotel at the Berkeley Marina: The Doubletree at the Berkeley Marina has a complimentary shuttle that will transport you directly to Perseverance Hall. There will also be a 6-passenger laboratory van available to accommodate additional persons. The shuttle and laboratory van will depart the Doubletree Hotel at 8:30AM. After the evening reception and social, the Doubletree shuttle and laboratory van will transport you back to the hotel. The return shuttle stop is at North Gate (at the corner of Hearst Avenue and Euclid Avenue). The return shuttle will depart North Gate at 7:15PM.

  • For those commuting via BART: Across the street from the Downtown Berkeley BART station, the LBNL off-site shuttle stop is near the corner of Shattuck Avenue and Addison Street: http://www.lbl.gov/LBL-Work/Facilities/Support/Busses/all_routes.html Please be prepared to present your electronic gate pass to the driver. Daisuke Kawasaki, UC Berkeley Student & Young Professionals Workshop Co-Chairman, will greet you at the B50, 51, 70 (cafeteria) shuttle stop at LBNL and direct you toward Building 54-130, where the meeting will be held. Following the evening reception and social, it is a short walk (approx. 5 minutes) to the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

Please note that parking at LBNL is limited and available by permit only.

Following the walking tour of the laboratory, you will be escorted down the hill to the UC Berkeley campus. You are free to explore the campus and surrounding areas at your leisure and can make your way independently to the UC Berkeley Faculty Club for the evening reception: http://berkeley.edu/map/
