Congratulations on your student’s acceptance as an undergraduate to UC Berkeley!
Your student will first complete online modules addressing academics and life at Berkeley prior to arrival on campus, and participate in Golden Bear Orientation for undergraduates.
While your students are transitioning to campus, here are some resources just for parents and student supporters.
There is an orientation just for Cal parents/supporters; find out specifics, including agenda details, on our Parents & Supporters Orientation page.
Not a parent? No problem!
Cal Parents and the Letter Home series are for useful for anyone who serves as a support system for a Berkeley undergraduate.
Cal Parents provides many resources for parents, guardians, and families of all UC Berkeley students. You'll find a resource guide, Facebook community, and updates on campus policies.
During Move-In, activity is very busy so be sure to plan ahead and read instructions at the Housing Move-In website.
We cannot provide housing for parents, families, and guests during orientation. Please visit the Cal Parents Lodging & Dining web page for a list of nearby lodging.
