Fall Welcome Week 2021

Welcome Week is filled with important activities and sessions designed for new students living on and off campus.

Some Welcome Week programming is mandatory, and all of the information you will receive is important. Your first day of Welcome Week depends on your college affiliation; plan to participate in programming starts September 16 or after your move-in date.

We understand that you may not be able to attend some programming (due to religious holidays, family commitments or obligations, health issues, etc.). If you cannot attend a mandatory session, contact orientation@ucsc.edu for support and for additional session options.

After September 1st, you will receive the Welcome Week Canvas course email. The Welcome Week Canvas course contains the full 5-7 day Welcome Week schedule, including details on how to participate virtually.

Check your email for 2021 Welcome Week information.

Note: Fall 2021 quarter classes begin on September 23rd.
