UCPath Support Contacts

While the UCPath Operations Team is the primary support group for the UCPath system, UCPath is a complex system that is directly connected to many other groups on campus, such as the Controller's Office and Berkeley Regional Services. Depending on your issue or question, you may need to reach out to someone outside the UCPath team.
