Notice – Policies and resources for the campus community on the COVID-19 global pandemic, including necessary health and safety precautions and how to obtain more information from health care providers, state health authorities, and the CDC's COVID-19 web site

We hope you are staying healthy and adjusting well to online instruction. We would like to inform you of some actions we are taking in response to COVID-19. 

In light of the campus response to COVID-19, all of our academic advising will be done virtually (no in-person meetings) for the remainder of the semester. Advisors will be working and corresponding remotely with all students. Advisors will add a Google hangouts meet link to all calendar appointments made so that you can meet virtually.  Please review your recent communications from the advisors for further instructions and reach out to them as needed. We are here and we care!

Our Student Resource Center is now closed due to the mandatory Shelter-In-Place Order. You can visit the UC Berkeley Basic Needs Center's Guide to COVID-19 for real-time updates, as well as the University's Official Coronavirus Information page
