Budget Basics


As a major public research university serving more than 40,000 students, UC Berkeley is an incredibly complex organization - and it is not always easy to understand how money flows through the institution.

We’ve built this site in order to make sure that the campus community can get a sense of how Berkeley’s budget works, how the annual budget cycle functions, and how the campus aims to maintain stable finances after a major budget deficit.

Take a look at the sections above to learn more about how money flows through our institution.
