EOP Campus Resource Guide

Navigating the university landscape can be overwhelming and confusing at times.. Where do I start? What resources are available to support me? Who can I turn to for questions?

Don’t worry! EOP has created a digital resource guide to provide information about various departments and student organizations that you can add to your UC Berkeley roadmap. We offer an extensive campus referral network and partner closely with many of these resources while striving to meet the student’s holistic needs.
