Welcome to the CSUA

UC Berkeley Computer Science Association


Hello World!

The CSUA supports the undergraduate computer science student body at UC Berkeley and acts as an entry point to industry. We host tech talks, hackathons, info sessions, workshops, LAN parties, and the biannual Startup Fair.

Looking for a place to learn more about computer science and meet other students? Come visit us at our office (311 Soda) or come to our events.

Our Office

The CSUA Office is located in 311 Soda Hall—in front of the 3rd floor entrance to Soda Hall. Inside are computers, study space, a TV, a fridge, a microwave, board games, and a library. Business hours are 10am-7pm, at this time no gaming is allowed in the office.

Officers keep the office open and work around the clock to provide support and community to students. There is always at least one officer present if the office is unlocked. Come say hi! Learn more about officers here
