Did you know? — “Berkeley Time”

Did you know that, at Berkeley, classes start 10 minutes after their scheduled times?

Known as “Berkeley time,” this time serves as a buffer zone for students with back-to-back classes.

For example, if your schedule says you have

Class A from 9:00–11:30AM
Class B from 11:30AM–2:00PM

don’t worry!

Class A will start at 9:10 and end at 11:30, and
Class B will start at 11:40 and end at 2:00,
giving you 10 minutes to travel from class A to B.

Similarly, if your schedule says you have

Class B from 11:30AM–2:00PM
Class C from 2:00–4:30PM,

Class C will not start until 2:10, so you can in fact take those two classes back to back.
