This page will be updated as more information becomes necessary.
The Department of Bioengineering offices will be closed March 16 through at least April 7 as part of COVID-19 response. Staff and faculty are still working and available to assist you via email, phone, or Zoom.
We understand this is a difficult time and are doing our best to maintain services to the Bioengineering community while minimizing the potential spread of the virus. Further closure may be necessary, we will post new information as the situation develops.
Please see the updates and resources below for assistance.
What is going on with my current class??
Contact your instructor via their information in the syllabus, Bcourses, etc. If you can’t find that, see the BioE faculty contact information online. For general campus access information, check the campus Coronavirus status page.
I need to talk to someone about my grades, enrollment, performance, illness leave, concerns, or something else specific to the BioE program:
For undergraduate advising: Marisela Loza, email@example.com
For the Master of Engineering: Stephanie Bianco, firstname.lastname@example.org
For Master of Translational Medicine: Moose O’Donnell, email@example.com
For the PhD program: Janna Conway-Hamilton, firstname.lastname@example.org
I need to talk to a staff member about something BioE-specific (courses, payments, events, academic appointments, graduate admissions, staff issues, meeting with the Chair…)
Please see the list of staff by their area of expertise and contact the appropriate person.
Still not sure? Contact email@example.com for general inquiries.
Should I be going to my research lab? What about my experiments?
Research operations on campus are reduced to critical maintenance only. Contact your faculty member or lab manager for information specific to your lab.
I want to set up a remote or virtual interaction for study/tutoring/discussion/meeting, etc. How?
Faculty, staff and GSIs have access to Zoom Pro. Students can set up meetings via Google Hangouts Meet, or use a limited, free basic Zoom account. See more advice and resources listed at the Center for Teaching and Learning.
I need to talk to a BioE faculty member who is not my instructor.
Faculty are mostly available by email and Zoom. Note that they are VERY busy sorting out this new way of doing things, please be patient. See the BioE faculty contact information online
What is going on after Spring Break and this summer?
Instruction will remain online through the end of the semester. Listen for any specific exceptions or updates from your instructors. Large events are cancelled at least through April. The Bioengineering Department will follow campus guidelines – check the campus Coronavirus status page.
What about enrollment for Fall semester?
Berkeley will go on, Fall semester will happen. Faculty advising for Fall pre-enrollment advising will probably be moved online.
I’ve got a Stanley Hall problem (access, lost and found, special event, etc).
Contact building management at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-666-2666. Call 510-326-0496 for a building emergency.
I’m kind of sick. Do I quarantine? Do I have COVID-19? Should I go to the doctor, or go home?
For your health concerns, please call your own doctor and/or consult the University Health Services advice. UHS also operates a 24/7 advice nurse by phone and online.
Will I be thrown out of my dorm?
See updates from the Student Affairs office.
When in doubt, check the campus Coronavirus status page.
