UCMP has one of the largest paleontological collections of any university museum in the world. We serve the University and UC communities through research and instruction support.
Please note: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the UC Berkeley campus is currently closed and access to the UCMP collections is not possible. If you have loans to return, please contact the appropriate collections person BEFORE SHIPPING. The university has asked us to continue working from home until further notice. However, the campus has begun planning for in-person instruction in the Fall. Hence, we expect the collections will remain closed to outside researchers until further notice.
