Phase II of the Chang-Lin Tien Center for East Asian Studies

To build on its exceptional faculty and library resources, Berkeley is engaged in a major effort to construct the second phase of the Chang-Lin Tien Center for East Asian Studies. The Tien Center will provide all the Berkeley East Asian studies programs a space commensurate with their high reputation.

This new facility will bring together UC Berkeley's incomparable resources and programs in East Asian studies. It will unite the East Asian Library, the Institute of East Asian Studies, and the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures in a new, state-of-the-art building of architectural distinction.

Phase One of the project has now been completed. The new C.V. Starr East Asian Library — the first freestanding structure at a United States university erected solely for East Asian collections — opened its doors to the public on Monday, March 17, 2008.

Phase Two of the Tien Center will add a second building, sited nearby, to house the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and the Institute of East Asian Studies.
