UC Riverside

Few universities are as distinguished as UC Riverside. With over 60 years of research, we’re proud to be ranked among the top 1% of universities in the world.

But it’s about more than just rankings. The students here come from just about everywhere and anywhere. Each one is treated with the same level of respect as the next. Our campus is currently home to 24,000 students—but it’s only getting bigger.

Students here can dive straight into their subject—whether they’re studying Agricultural Sciences, or training to become a leader in Business Administration. That’s because we’re one of the only universities to offer faculty-led research to all undergrads.

So come join us. We think you’ll like it here.
