COVID-19 Update:

There are currently no known cases of COVID-19 within the UC Riverside community. However, as local, national and global public health recommendations shift to include mitigation of transmission, we are proactively taking steps that will help to protect the community.

For that reason, the following events have been canceled.

Highlander Day – Freshman, April 4

Scholarship Celebration, April 4

Highlander Day for Transfer Students on May 2 is still scheduled and accepting registrations; however, we are following the news carefully and will provide updates of any changes to all registered guests.

While we won’t be able to welcome you in person at this time, we are developing opportunities to connect virtually so all of your questions about UCR are able to be answered. Once developed, we will notify students of these opportunities via multiple platforms. We look forward to welcoming you to UCR soon.

Take virtual tours of UCR and check out these videos for a student-lead look at UCR’s CampusDiningHousing , and the vibrant city of Riverside.
