Campus Visit

Contact Jeremiah Kalendae, Admissions and Recruitment Director, at to arrange a visit to our beautiful campus, located in the “Holy Hill” neighborhood of the Graduate Theological Union, steps from the University of California, Berkeley.

For the full immersion into the spiritual, academic, and community life of the school, we recommend visiting when school is in session. Generally, a Tuesday is the best day to visit as that day allows you to explore the many facets of Starr King School for the Ministry.

A typical Starr King Campus Visit (Tuesday) includes:

  • 11:00am
    Admissions Director Meeting
  • 12:00pm
    Starr King and “Holy Hill” Campus Tour
  • 12:30pm
  • 1:00pm
    Starr King Weekly Chapel Service
  • 2:10pm
    Sit in on a Core Faculty Class

Campus visits are possible on other days and when school is not in session. Please contact Jeremiah at to make arrangements for your stay with us.
