UCR: Get Involved and Inspired
Located in the 10th most populous county in the United States and California’s fastest-growing region, UC Riverside has much to offer. Its diverse, inclusive, and globally focused community reflects California’s many cultures and perspectives.
As a member of the world’s most prestigious public university system, we offer our students a premier educational experience. UC Riverside ranked as a Top 10 public university in the U.S. — and America’s most transformative public university — by Money Magazine in 2020.
But what makes us great goes far beyond our academic rigor and rankings. There are countless ways to get involved and inspired at UC Riverside. We’re home to a thriving arts community, one-of-a-kind campus events, inspiring lecture series, and more than 450 student organizations.

- The UCR Library, home to more than 2 million books and one of the world’s largest cataloged collections of science fiction and fantasy;
