Berkeley College - Bigger and Better Than Ever!

Renaissance at Woodland Park       

There are big changes at Garret Mountain, now officially known as Berkeley's Woodland Park location. The “Renaissance at Woodland Park” is dramatically reshaping spaces to better serve students through cutting-edge academic facilities and multi-purpose gathering spots. Projects include a new campus entrance, new sidewalks, and a bus turnaround, as well as the renovation of the third floor of Building 1 to accommodate design and fashion classes.

In addition, a new glass atrium building houses an Admissions Visitor Center. Additions also include an expanded Student Center, dining services, new versatile classrooms and computer labs, conference rooms, and small group meeting rooms.

Many of the renovations are expected to be completed this summer. Be sure to schedule time to visit the campus and see all the spectacular changes!

New Lobby at 43rd Street in New York City

To reflect Berkeley's continuing efforts to expand services and spaces of value to our students, faculty, staff, and visitors, the College has recently renovated the main lobby at 3 East 43rd Street.

The centerpiece of the renovation includes the new front entrance doors, aesthetic modifications throughout the entire space, installation of new technology, a new Public Safety desk, and a Student Success and Information Desk that replaces the receptionist desk. Some of the other improvements include:

When students step into the 43rd Street entrance of the impressive seven-story Main Building, they see that the first-floor administrative offices, art gallery, and reception area still capture the charm of St. Christopher's Chapel, which previously occupied the space.
