The Gateway at UC Berkeley

The 380,000-square-foot Gateway is both a physical Gateway: the focal point at the north edge of campus to welcome community, and an intellectual Gateway: the expansive connector between diverse voices, perspectives, and disciplines

The Gateway will be a place where Berkeley will convene and connect brilliant faculty and students from their core disciplines of computing and data science with others across campus. With a shared purpose to improve human health, social justice, and environmental sustainability, the Gateway community will catalyze interdisciplinary collaboration to solve the most pressing problems of our time.

The 380,000-square-foot Gateway is both a physical Gateway: the focal point at the north edge of campus to welcome community, and an intellectual Gateway: the expansive connector between diverse voices, perspectives, and disciplines—uniting computing and data science with human perspective and purpose. The Gateway incroporates classrooms, lecture halls, and convening spaces. Some allow for more focused gathering for study and projects, while others open to the public. Within the Gateway, academic and cognitive boundaries yield to imagination and the collective commitment of hundreds of faculty, students, and staff to form a uniquely collaborative culture.

The Gateway will be home to the Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society (CDSS), a new entity that reimagines academic collaboration and co-creation to tackle the technical, scientific, social, and human dimensions of the most urgent challenges. The division is building platforms to accelerate scalable solutions in biomedicine and human health, climate and sustainability, as well as human welfare and social justice.
