Distances to MSRI
For your planning purposes, please note that MSRI is up a very steep hill from the U.C. campus, accessible
mostly by shuttle bus caught at Evans Hall on the U.C. campus. Please use Google Maps to check the distance
from housing properties to Evans Hall.
MSRI may be accessible from residences in the Berkeley hills via public bus lines. MSRI is accessible via
many scenic and pleasant footpaths in Berkeley. Please note that though the distances of these paths may be
short, the inclines are steep and there is little or no cell phone service from these paths.
