Welcome to our living/learning community!
On behalf of all of the staff in the Department of Residential Life, welcome to UC Berkeley. We are excited that you will be part of our residential community. We are here to support your transition and help you maximize your student experience here at Cal.
Our mission is to facilitate your transitions into the intellectual and social communities of the University of California, Berkeley, and to promote your personal well-being and respect for the community needs of all residents. Our residential and apartment communities are built on intentional learning goals:
Academic Success - Students will be able to identify several strategies and/or resources to support their academic pursuits
Community Engagement - Students will be able to engage their peers and develop a social network within their residential community
Diversity & Global Consciousness - Students will be able to communicate ideas and practice behaviors needed to function in a diverse residential community
Identity Exploration - Students will be able to explore and express their own values and beliefs
Holistic Wellness - Students will be able to practice strategies that support their personal well being and a healthy life
It is my hope that you get involved with one of our many leadership opportunities within the residential communities. Our dedicated and caring hall staff will help make your time living with us as successful and fulfilling as possible. I also hope to see you at campuswide events intended to expand your social and academic development.
Best of luck and Go BEARS!
Glenn DeGuzman, Ed.D.
Director of Residential Life
