Wherever you look on campus, you'll see the brightest students and faculty from all over the world gathering together to build friendships and learn from one another. Berkeley is known for welcoming students from all nationalities—we are part of a global community. Not only are you welcome here, but you belong here.

Berkeley celebrates diversity—the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley are among the most diverse places in the entire country. Nearly 35% of San Francisco residents were born outside of the U.S. What does this mean for you? You'll be studying in—and becoming part of—a community that values where we came from and is excited about where we're going.
