Our Campus

We love talking about our inspiring campus, but don't take our word for it. Forbes magazine called UC "among the world's most beautiful."

And while our built environment and "starchitecture" are internationally known, what makes our campus truly stunning is its visionary, intentional approach to creating memorable college experiences. Diverse academic settings, cutting edge labs, open green spaces and pedestrian pathways are designed to promote intellectual curiosity and enhance student life.

Schedule a visit, and we think you'll agree with The New York Times that UC has the "most ambitious campus ­design program in the country."
