We hope that you are already enjoying the new improved PortalPlus which is now especially designed for UCB students, but if not we have something that might be more tempting for you.
We are proud to announce that the new UCB Discussion Forum goes live today within PortalPlus. The forum has been created to allow UCB students to:
ask for help from fellow students or staff,
help peers by answering forum questions,
make comments and suggestions regarding our services.
