Sign in/up

In addition to the Cal Performances fine arts program, we are able to provide professional quality facilities and services for UC Berkeley on-campus users, community groups, and professional promoters and presenters. Our facilities can accommodate a wide range of special events such as dance, music, theater, and other performing arts disciplines, as well as lectures, symposia, seminars, meetings, and other entertainment or education related activities at competitive market-based rental rates.

Rental dates are available on a first-come, first-served basis and may be limited due to the high level of activity in our venues. Scheduling flexibility greatly increases the possibility of securing a venue. On campus users have priority over off campus users.

Zellerbach Auditorium is a 1978 seat proscenium theater.
