 Directions for Dwinelle Hall:

 Dwinelle Hall is notorious for being hard to navigate. In order to find the room we suggest that you follow the directions below. 1. Enter campus via Sather Gate, which is located near where Telegraph Avenue meets the Berkeley campus. After going through the Gate and crossing the immediately following bridge, the first building on your left will be Dwinelle Hall. Enter through the doors off the big plaza. 2. This entrance to Dwinelle Hall is on Level D. To the right in the main hall, there will be an elevator. Take it to Level F/G. Alternately, you can take the stairwell directly opposite the elevator. 3. Once you have exited the elevator, follow the room numbers to 310. (Dwinelle Hall has two wings, North and South. In the North Wing of Dwinelle, rooms are numbered in the 1000s. You want the South Wing of Dwinelle, where rooms are numbered in the 100s-on this floor, the 300s).
