Vanina Granell, Director of International Student Services

Welcome Back!

We loved seeing you at orientation and we hope you are settling in and enjoying your Berkeley experience. International Student Services (ISS) invites you to enhance your academic learning—get involved on campus, build your community and push yourself with new experiences. The semester will be full of surprises, opportunities and challenges. We are here to support you all year long with anything you need—from questions about your visa, travel, employment to helping you adjust to Berkeley, navigate resources, and support your health and wellness.

We are here to serve all students and cultivate an engaged and inclusive global community.
