    The Campanile is home to the 10,500 pound Great Bear Bell, which has the image of young bears and the constellation Ursa Major. The bell tolls on the hour and was a gift of Evelyn and Jerry Chambers.

    The Campanile is probably Cal's most recognizable location. During Big Game week it is light up with different projections bring school pride and spirit to the campus. It's also taller than Stanfurds!

    A Berkeley visit isn't complete without a trip to the top of the Campanile. Make sure you go up on a clear day!

    This is one of the best lookout points in the Bay Area. Ask the elevator operator what goes on/went on on all the floors you are might find it fascinating!

    The Campanile was built in 1914 and stands 307 feet tall, making it the third tallest bell and clocktower in the world. Take a tour and travel up 200 feet to the observation platform. What a view! Read more

    it's worth the $3 ticket to ride 7 floors to the top- especially if you're list on campus

    Get to the top between 12 and 12:10 Monday-Saturday to experience the carillon played live. You can see the carillonist playing the keyboards with hands and feet!
