LBL Potter Street
Our location at 717 Potter Street, within the Environmental Genomics & Systems Biology (EBSG) department, is fairly easy to get to, near I-80. Car is the easiest method to get here, but the Potter Street shuttle from the Downtown Berkeley BART station is also a possibility, as well as bike. If you manage to get into the building without one of us, please sign in at the main desk first.

Parking near campus can be difficult or impossible. There is parking
available for guests on the LBNL campus up the hill from UC

arrangements to make sure that you have a visitor’s pass waiting at
the main gate of LBL. We recommend LBL Lot E for BBOP visitors to
