Engineering Student Services advising
Until further notice all ESS appointments will be conducted virtually. Please continue to make appointments with your ESS adviser online and you will be emailed the link for your virtual appointment.
Upon admission, every Berkeley Engineering student is assigned an academic adviser based on their major. Your Engineering Student Services (ESS) adviser works with you throughout your entire undergraduate career and is your key to a successful experience at Berkeley.
ESS advisers are available to help with everything related to your undergraduate education. They answer questions about degree and graduation requirements as well as academic policies and procedures. They assist with course selection and help address challenges you may be facing in your studies. They can suggest enrichment opportunities or make referrals to campus resources. They’re here to offer guidance and support.
Students admitted as undeclared work with a special adviser until they declare a major; at that point, their ESS adviser will be based on their new major.

Advising is available by appointment only.
Use our online appointment system or call (510) 642-7594 during business hours. Scheduled appointments are available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9–4 p.m.
Please be on time for your appointment. If you are more than five minutes late, you will be asked to reschedule.
We offer drop-in advising every Wednesday from 9–11:30 a.m. and 1–3:30 p.m. Come to Engineering Student Services in 230 Bechtel Engineering Center and sign in at the front desk. Drop-in advising is on a first-come, first-served basis. Waiting times may vary dramatically, depending on demand. Whenever possible, it’s best to make an appointment.
You may contact your adviser via email or phone. For matters requiring in-depth discussion, it’s best to meet with your adviser in person. If you are unable to come to ESS for a meeting, you can schedule a phone appointment.
