Once You're Here
Once you arrive on campus, you take part in Move-In, Golden Bear Orientation, and Getting Your Bearings. You complete this part of your Golden Bear Experience in mid-August, beginning with Move-In. (Or in January for January Start students.)
Note: You do not need to register to participate.
During this time, you become familiar with the vast array of academic, intellectual, social, and cultural opportunities UC Berkeley has to offer:
- Welcome receptions from your college (where you’ll meet academic advisers, deans, and faculty)
- Resources like University Health Services, the Student Learning Center, and Career Center
- Late-night movies, guest lectures, theater and comedy, concerts
And this is just the beginning. Welcome to Cal!
We can't wait to meet you.
