Providing a Safe & Healthy Campus

Student safety is a top priority at UC Riverside. In addition to the UCR Police Department’s professional law enforcement and patrol services, we also have a variety of programs to ensure your child’s safety, including a sophisticated emergency notification system.

We know that with all that college life demands, it can be tough for students to maintain a healthy mind, body and spirit. At UCR, we’re committed to keeping our students well and improving their physical, emotional, social and academic well-being. We know that when our students feel their best, they can do their best.

Our Campus Health Center, Counseling Center, and Student Recreation Center are resources for our students to use to get healthy and stay healthy. All fees are affordable, and student insurance is available.

Campus Safety

 UCR's Police Department is here to provide a safe and secure learning environment at UCR. In addition to law enforcement services, we also provide:

Campus Health Center

 UCR's Campus Health Center provides a variety of medical services for our students — from walk-up clinic care to urgent care for medical emergencies. Students with the UC Student Health Insurance Plan have no out-of-pocket expenses for doctor’s visits. Students with private insurance will have a $20 fee for doctor's visits.

Student Recreation Programs

 The UCR Student Recreation Center is committed to getting our students involved and keeping them fit and healthy. Students have access to a variety of recreational, intramural and club sports. They can take a yoga class, join a game of pick-up basketball, or sign up for an adventure like rock climbing, surfing or camping with our Outdoor Excursions Program. The expanded Outdoor Complex includes 10 tennis courts, a full size roller hockey rink, two sand volleyball courts, and two full-length basketball courts. The facilities are free to UCR students with a current ID. Others may purchase quarterly memberships or day passes.

Counseling Center

 The Counseling Center is dedicated to creating a positive, healthy atmosphere at UCR and working with students to provide an environment that promotes their academic, career, personal and social development. The center’s clinical team provides counseling services to undergraduate and graduate students to allow them to grow in ways that help them take advantage of the educational opportunities at UCR.

Our counselors are available by phone 24 hours, seven days a week, at (951) 827-5531.
