BERKELEY – Californians, particularly residents of Berkeley, California, and students at the University of California, Berkeley, were shocked this morning as the University of California revealed its plans to open a new University of California, located within the campus of the pre-existing University of California, Berkeley.

“We are pleased to announce California’s newest university, the University of California, University of California, Berkeley, or UCUCB for short,” said University of California President Janet Napolitano.

UCUCB is the 10th university to become a part of the internationally recognized public university system in California, joining the likes of the Universities of California Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and San Diego.

Students of the University of California, Berkeley, expressed disapproval at the announcement. “Okay, look. It’s tiring enough having to explain to everyone that UC Berkeley is the original UC. But now we have to take care to emphasize not only that UC Berkeley is the original UC, but also that it’s the original UC in Berkeley? Give me a break,” commented sophomore James Hammond.

“I’m confused,” said geography major Hannah Grant, “Is the University of California, University of California, Berkeley, part of the University of California, Berkeley, or its own separate University of California? Also, does it use the same buildings and professors as Berkeley – sorry, UC Berkeley? You know which ones I’m talking about,” she continued. “If so, what’s the difference between the two universities?”

President Napolitano has not yet clarified the logistics of the relationship between the University of California, Berkeley and the University of California, University of California, Berkeley, nor has she presented any helpful identification materials to differentiate between the UCB (UC Berkeley), UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade), UCUCB (UC UC Berkeley), and UBC (University of British Columbia).

The UC Board of Regents did, however, provide a mailing address for the new UC:

University of California, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, California 94704
