Parent and Supporters Orientation Program 

Updated June 2, 2023

If you are a parent or a supporter of an incoming freshman or transfer student to UC Berkeley curious about the ways you can support your student in their Berkeley journey, consider joining the Parent and Supporters Orientation! We will host two sessions. We recognize that this is a very busy and impactful time for your family. While we would love for you to join us, please know that spending time with your student is also very important.


Location: Pauley Ballroom, MLK Student Union 3rd Floor

Session #1: Tuesday, August 15 3:00-5:00pm

Session #2: Wednesday, August 16 9:00-11:00am


Each will have the same content – no need to attend both! We will also be recording the session and adding it to this site after the program is over (early September). Agenda to be added by July 2023. Your student may be moving in to University Residence Halls (August 15 or August 16) and checking into Golden Bear Orientation (August 16). Due to capacity and in an effort to provide space for as a many Parents and Supporters as possible, your student may not be able to attend the session with you.
