ORIAS Summer Teacher's Institute




The class will be held from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. (continental breakfast available at 8:30 A.M.) in the conference room of the Institute of East Asian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, located at 2223 Fulton Street, Sixth Floor. Telephone (510) 642-2809; Fax (510) 643-7062. The institute is located near the southwest corner of campus facing the intersection of Kittredge and Fulton Streets in Berkeley. Please see campus map.


To reach the site by car from Interstate 80, exit at the University Avenue off-ramp in Berkeley. Take University Avenue east to Oxford Street and turn right. Oxford becomes Fulton Street in a couple of blocks. 2223 Fulton Street is a six-story beige building on the east (left) side of the street.

To reach us from Highways 24/13, exit 13 at Tunnel Road in Berkeley. Continue on Tunnel Road as it becomes Ashby. Turn right at Telegraph and drive approximately one mile north to Bancroft Way and turn left. The 2223 Fulton Street Building is at the northeast corner of the Bancroft and Fulton intersection (right side).

If traveling by BART, exit the Richmond-Fremont line at the downtown Berkeley station (not North Berkeley). When you leave the BART station, walk south down Shattuck Avenue to Kittredge Street (one or two blocks depending on which station exit you leave from) and turn left. Walk one block to Fulton Street and you will be facing the 2223 Fulton Street Building.


Temporary student parking is available in the large Bancroft/Fulton campus parking lot near the institute site at a rate of $40 for the five-day program (or $8 per day). You may purchase a temporary student parking passes for all or some of the days through ORIAS by check payable to U. C. Regents -- payment can be made during the institute but I will still need to know the number you will need in advance. Please let Michele at ORIAS know before June 26th if you wish to purchase a pass. If you give us enough advance notice we will mail the passes to you, otherwise we will hold them for pick-up at the institute. The passes are good for F/S (faculty staff) parking lots but not for C (Central) spots. You may not use the campus lots without one of these permits.

To park in the university lot if coming from I-80: continue south on Fulton, cross Bancroft, and at the next intersection turn left onto Durant Avenue. Stay in the left lane, turn left into the second driveway - this leads into the Bancroft/Fulton parking lot. If coming from Highways 24/13: while on Bancroft pass Ellsworth and turn left into the Bancroft/Fulton parking lot. Public parking is also available at lots in downtown Berkeley. There is a list of these lots on the campus transportation page at


We will serve coffee and pastries at 8:30 A.M. and light refreshments during the morning and afternoon breaks. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday we will host a buffet lunch on the premises to give all the participants a chance to meet and talk. On Thursday you will take lunch on your own. The institute is adjacent to downtown Berkeley where there are a number of interesting restaurants.


The University offers dormitory housing during summer sessions. Applications can be found at
