Welcome to Fresno State!

Whether you are a new or returning student, we want to welcome you to campus! Check out our amazing events and explore information on parkingsafetytextbooks and computers, and other important resources on campus!


Help is available during the first week of classes at any of the welcome booths staffed by student volunteers, but is always a good idea to:

  • Give yourself extra time to get to campus! With thousands of students coming back to campus, the beginning of school can feel hectic- but you can beat the lines in offices and parking by showing up early!
  • Confirm your class schedule and locations! Print your schedule the night before for the most up-to-date information in case of any room changes.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothing! Campus can be big and overwhelming, so make sure you're dressed comfortably.
