Campus Visit

We would love to have you visit Starr King School for the Ministry in beautiful Berkeley, California. Please fill out a Prospective Student Form to request a Campus Visit or Admissions Counseling appointment. We are located in the “Holy Hill” neighborhood of Graduate Theological Union schools, just steps from the University of California, Berkeley. You may also email Jeremiah Kalendae, the Director of Admissions and Recruitment, at for more information.

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.
