Welcome to UC San Diego and the Muir College Family! 

Whether you are a new first year student, new transfer student, or family member, we are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to John Muir College and UC San Diego.

We acknowledge the challenges facing our students, parents, and families. We are committed to creating experiences that are accessible to all our students, regardless of their situation. Please know we have your health and safety of our team and our community at the forefront of our mind. We’ll be taking all recommended precautions for programs, as well as providing alternatives for you as they arise.

  • Introduce you to the wealth of involvement opportunities at John Muir College
