Berkeley’s Nobel Prize Parking

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

There’s a great story on NPR’s Morning Edition about UC Berkeley’s “Nobel Laureate” parking spots. From the article:

Winning a Nobel Prize is difficult enough. But on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, there is something that might be even more difficult to get: a parking space on the central campus.

That’s why Berkeley has made it a practice to offer its Nobel laureates an extra-special perk: a free lifetime permit to park in the highly coveted spaces near the central campus. The spots would normally cost about $1,500 a year.

Five of the ‘NL’ spots are by the Berkeley Physics department and the article mentions ’06 physics laureate and Cal cosmologist George Smoot. I spent a summer in Berkeley in 2006 and dug up the following photo from the time:
