The UC and Richmond Global Campus (formerly the Richmond Field Station) provides over 10,000 square feet of studio space in a beautiful San Francisco Bay-side location. Available for 24-hour use, the UC and Richmond Global Campus  (RGC) graduate studios share a kitchen, a meeting room, open construction space, wireless internet access, a digital video editing station, digital printers, and flexible exhibition space.

Although there is a bus from campus to the UC and Richmond Global Campus, it does not run after 6pm or on weekends and the public transportation system does not provide service to the site at this time. Students need to have their own transportation to have adequate access to the studios. Please note: we do not give tours of the MFA studios, but each year in March, we offer an Open Studios day.

Main Campus Studios

Two graduate studios are maintained in Wurster Hall on the UC Berkeley main campus. Both studios are wheelchair-accessible.

Graduate Studio Forms

All RFS and Campus studio artists must follow campus rules for health and safety. Living in the studio is not permitted under any circumstances. Small communal kitchen facilities, restrooms, showers, and many other facilities are provided at RFS. Rules, required forms, and schedules are available here:
