Cal Day

Cal Day takes place in the spring of each year. The event provides an opportunity for newly admitted students and their families to experience the Berkeley campus. We look forward to showcasing Berkeley’s commitment to ensuring that all students find community and achieve academic success.

Admitted & waitlisted students, come to Cal Day on Saturday, April 13, 2024 from 8am-4pm! For admitted students, registration for Cal Day is in your MAP@Berkeley portal. For waitlisted students, registration isn't required.

We’ll be offering guided tours on Cal Day with no registration required. Watch this page for a link to Guidebook for the full days events. For an idea of what we might offer, here is the guide to last year's 2023 Cal Day: “UC Berkeley / Cal Event Guides” app

Cal Week is our virtual resources week. During Cal Week you’ll have access to a variety of videos from departments and resources on campus. Through Cal Week you’ll discover Berkeley and its community, plus you will see why Berkeley is where you belong. There are no time constraints or view limits to our resources. Learn more about Berkeley on your own time in the comfort of your own home.
