The Department of Bioengineering staff will be working limited in-person hours as part of COVID-19 response. Please see the current, live BioE Office Staff Schedule.
We recommend contacting staff and faculty first by email or phone to set up an in-person meeting if necessary. Please see the Staff Directory and Faculty Listing to see how to contact them. 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.
There are a LOT of answers and resources provided by campus above. Please explore.
I need to talk to someone about something specific to the BioE degree program:

I’m an international student. How do I manage residency and Visa regulations?
Please see the Berkeley International Office and contact your program advisor with any individual questions.
Help! I’m experiencing hardship or running out of money to pay for basic expenses!
UC Berkeley has streamlined its student emergency aid process and launched a COVID-19 Basic Needs website to provide assistance with housing, food, medical expenses, and technology needs. All students — including undergraduate, graduate, international, and undocumented students — are eligible to receive assistance. Please also work with the Financial Aid office for planning and additional resources.
What is going on with my classes?
Please understand that the situation continues to evolve. The BioE department will be following all campus guidelines. Please see the campus instruction site for information and contact your program advisor for individual issues.
How do I stay involved with BioE?
Read your email! There will be events and resources throughout the year.
My computer or internet can’t handle all of this online stuff.
Check out the technology lending program from the Student Technology Equity Program.
I’ve got a Stanley Hall problem (access, lost and found, special event, etc).
