Transfer Community

The Transfer Student Center

The Transfer Student Center, located in the 100 Cesar Chavez Student Center, provides a welcoming community space where new and continuing transfer students can find information, advice, and support as they transition to and move through the university. The center provides an information desk staffed by trained and experienced peers, study tables, couches, computers, a printing station, resource information, a microwave, and tea. 

Community Building Events

Community events and gatherings are designed to facilitate building connections and fostering community for new and continuing transfer students at Cal. The events focus on building supportive networks and providing a relaxing break from the stressors of student life. 

Our biweekly Transfer Recess gatherings are a space for transfer students to come together and meet other transfer students over light snacks and discussion topics that are important to the transfer community. These are informal gatherings facilitated by Transfer Center student staff with the goal of building a strong sense of community!

Peer Advocates

Peer Advocates are transfer students who staff the information and referral desk at the center during hours of operation (Monday-Thursday, 9am-5pm and Fridays 9-4pm). They serve as key resources for new and continuing transfer students navigating the academic, social, and cultural terrain of the university. The Peer Advocates are experienced and knowledgeable about common questions and concerns in the transfer student community. They keep the center a welcoming and inviting space for all transfer students and guests.
