University of California, Riverside

University of California, Riverside is a campus of University of California System

Located on nearly 1,200 scenic acres in Inland Southern California and distinguished by more than 60 years of high-impact research, UCR is a living laboratory for the exploration of issues critical to growing communities. One of the most diverse, inclusive institutions within the prestigious 10 campus University of California system, UCR serves as an incubator of new knowledge, an engine of social mobility, and an economic powerhouse.

UCR’s three colleges offer a wide range of academic and research subjects: The Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering, with nine departments; The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, with 20 departments; and the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences, with 13 departments. We are home to four professional schools: School of Business, Graduate School of Education, School of Medicine, and School of Public Policy, as well as 23 interdisciplinary research centers.

Currently home to approximately 24,000 students and 1,100 institutional faculty, the campus is rapidly expanding. To support the addition of hundreds of new faculty and students, the first of two Multidisciplinary Research Buildings is already under construction. New campus student housing, dining, retail, and recreational facilities will be added in the next few years.

UCR is also within easy driving distance of dozens of major cultural and recreations sites, as well as desert, mountain, and coastal destinations.
