Welcome to Berkeley!

Berkeley is a big place, and there are so many resources to help you along the way.

Our New Graduate Student Guide is a nice summary of important actions graduate students should know as well as many resources available to you. In addition to the guide, you can find helpful links to ease your transition to Berkeley. Need help navigating resources? Make a 15-minute appointment with our Director of Graduate Student Life.
