Info for New Graduate Students
You should have created your CalNet ID and received a Student Identification Number (SID) when you accepted your admissions offer. If you still need to claim your CalNet ID, please see https://calnetweb.berkeley.edu/calnet-me/how-claim-your-calnet-id, or contact email@example.com.
Your EECS account will be the primary method of communication for Department business, and can be used to access various EECS resources. You may now set your initial password for your EECS account using our IRIS Self-Serve page. Your @eecs.berkeley.edu email address will simply be an alias for your existing bMail address.
A brief IT Orientation will be held August 22, 2022. During the orientation we will present pertinent information about EECS and UC Berkeley networking and computing services, as well as guidelines and policies. Successful completion of this orientation is required to obtain your laptop. The Orientation will be recorded, for those who cannot attend it in real-time.
First-Year Grad Laptops
If you chose a laptop model via the first-year grad summer survey, we should have you and your choice listed on this document. We may be able to accommodate some late changes or additions; please email help@eecs if an update is needed, and do not pick up any assigned laptop in the meantime.
We are hopeful that all laptops ordered will arrive before Fall semester begins, but supply-chain problems continue to delay many deliveries. We will endeavor to keep all informed about laptop deliveries.
If notified that your laptop is ready for pickup, you may drop by the IRIS Helpdesk at 395 Cory Hall, beginning the day after the IT Orientation. Your laptop is set aside under your name, so you can plan your visit at your convenience. Plan for about 10-15 minutes, so that you’ll have time to verify a successful login using your EECS account.
Shipping to remote students
If you are unable to safely pick up your assigned laptop in person, please submit a suitable address on the following form:
We may have some restrictions on international shipping, depending on the country. If we find this to be the case for your situation, options may include holding your laptop for you until you can come to the U.S., or deferring your laptop choice until next year.
