The Clark Kerr campus at UC Berkeley was constructed in the 1930’s as part of the California Schools for the Deaf and Blind. After the school relocated, the campus was bought by the University of California.
It was renovated in a beautiful Spanish style, and named after Dr Clark Kerr who served as the first Chancellor for the University of California from 1952 to 1958, and went on to become president of the university.
The campus is a recognised landmark of the City of Berkeley.
In the college students are overseen by the Programme Director, who implements the day-to-day running of the programme. The Director is assisted by a team of Counsellors who very often are current members of the University of Oxford or University of Cambridge.
The Counsellors ensure that students are looked after pastorally, culturally and socially during their programme. Students are able to talk informally and frankly to the Counsellors in order to raise concerns or to discuss university applications.
Each campus has a few members of residential staff who live in the college throughout the programme and are able to assist students at any time of the day or night.
