Richmond Bay Campus

The University of California (UC) proposes to establish a new major research campus at properties it owns in Richmond, California for development of additional research related facilities for both Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and UC Berkeley. The proposed 2013 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) for the Richmond Bay Campus (RBC) would guide campus development through 2050. Initial development under Phase 1 would occur through 2018.
