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 the Student Learning Center, Educational Opportunity Program, Career Center, Gender Equity Resource Center
- Late-night movies, guest lectures, theater and comedy, concerts, the Big Game
- Scholarship resources, Cal Dining, PATH to Care Center (for survivors), BearWalk Night Safety, your Cal 1 Card
And this is just the beginning. Welcome to Cal!
You can find specific dates on our calendar. We can't wait to meet you.
