Blood Drives

UHS Blood Drives at UC Berkeley are sponsored by the American Red Cross (ARC) to provide much-needed blood to hospitals throughout the Bay Area.

Please go to, the American Red Cross website and enter the sponsor code "UCB", or call 1-800 RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Basic Eligibility Guidelines

To ensure the safety of blood donation for both donors and recipients, all volunteer blood donors must be evaluated to determine their eligibility to give blood. The final determination will be made on the day of the donation at the blood drive or blood donation center. If you were deferred from donating in the past, you may be able to donate again.

Please see the American Red Cross eligibility requirements.
